There will be two divisions for the 2017 event. The Junior Division will allow players born 1996 and Younger. The Young Guns division will allow players born 1999 and younger. Players can play up a division but under no circumstance are players allowed to play down a division. All teams will play four round robin games. There is no sudden death for round robin games.

If nothing is resolved after 5 minutes, a 3 man shootout will take place. The shootout format will consist of the first three players designated by each coach who will shoot until one team has a goal advantage. No timeouts will be allowed in any round robin games.
