NHL Makes Major Changes to Overtime Format

nhl changes overtime format

The NHL will have a different overtime format next season. Both the league and the players want to cut down on shootouts but both sides have different preferences. According to Elliotte Friedman:

The GMs prefer the AHL method that starts at four on four, eventually dropping one skater per team - while the NHLPA prefers three on three from the get-go, with the extra period remaining at five minutes.

A decision will be made before the start of the 2015-16 NHL season.
