If you recevive a penalty with less than 2 minutes to go in regulation and your league goes straight to a shootout ( NO OT Period) Are you eligible to participate in the shootout?? I'm sure this varies league to league.
I was in a league where they have a running clock (was 10 minutes) and you were eligble to shoot once your "time" had ran out. So if you got a 10 minute misconduct 2 minutes into OT, you wouldn't be available for SO until 7 minutes had past in SO.
there is no shootout in usa hockey. atleast not when i played
Depends on the league. USA Hockey does have a shoot-out(NHL format) and in WNYAHL playoffs it follows the third OT period. A player who is assessed a 10 minute Major with less than 10 left in total play time before a shoot out is NOT eligible. The player is assessed a G.M. and ejected. In WNYAHL it can also earn you a bench slot for the next game or more depending.
