Rule changesEdit

In December 2018, the IIHF announced changes to the overtime procedures beginning at this tournament: all overtime periods will be 3-on-3 regardless of round (rather than progressing from 3-on-3 to 4-on-4 and 5-on-5 over the course of the tournament), and the gold medal game will no longer go to a shootout; play will continue in 20-minute periods of 3-on-3 until a winning goal is scored.[2]

In the semifinals there will be no set bracket. After the quarterfinals, a re-seeding takes place with the highest seed plays the lowest remaining seed. Seeds are determined by performance in the preliminary round.[3]
