I'm not too familiar with the Traverse City tournament, but 5 shooters (and the ability to reuse them) mirrors the way shootouts were handled in international hockey around the time the camp was established.

This also pre-dates the NHL's use of the shootout of course.

Now, international hockey is down to 3 shooters, but that came after the NHL did it (08ish)
