Teams play each team in their conference
4 times at home and 4 times away from
home, and each team in the other conference
twice at home and twice away.
2 points for a win or 1 point each
for a tie at 60 minutes plus 1 point
for win after overtime or penalty
Team finishing 1st will
be Elite League Champions and
will be seeded 1st for the
playoffs, while the 2nd
seed will be the winner of the Conference
that does not produce the league
winner. The remaining six playoff
spots will be taken in order from
the final Elite League table.
Some Elite League games may also
count as Challenge Cup games
and points count for both.
