It's official. BC Hockey has approved a plan by the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League to implement new changes to its points system and tiebreaking procedure as a pilot project for next season. VIJHL President Barb Byrne announced "It's now official, we will be using the 3 point game system and shoot-outs for the upcoming season."
The new points system will be 3 points to a regulation win, 2 points for an overtime or shoot-out win, and 1 point for an overtime or shoot out loss. For shoot-outs they will proceed if four-on-four and three-on-three overtimes are unsuccessful in breaking deadlocks. 
A similar type of point system is used at the Cyclone Taylor Cup in order to determine a provincial champion. The league is responsible for the submission of a complete report on the impact of the project by March 15th 2019.
