CCHA to Use Shootout

The CCHA became the first college hockey conference to officially announce that they will use an NHL-style shootout to decide tie games during league play.

This was almost a foregone conclusion after the NCAA rules committee approved shootouts to decide regular season games. Shootouts are a topic that has been beaten to death, but while they are gimmicky, this should make CCHA hockey even more exciting this year.
