The CCHA announced today that they will continue using shootouts at the end of tie games during regular season conference games.
Once the league went to a more logical 3-point per game system--which the NHL desperately needs to do--I didn't really have a problem with the shootouts. The league handles the shootouts in pretty much the right way.
There was some talk of college hockey going with a uniform overtime/shootout policy, but since the only effect shootouts have is on conference standings, there's really no need for everyone to be the same.
The league is also adopting a uniform timeout policy, similar to what the WCHA instituted last year, where there will be three one-minute breaks every period.
