NLA seasons

The 2006-07 NLA season was the 69th regular season of the Nationalliga A (NLA), the main professional ice hockey league in Switzerland. There were some rule changes to the standings and playoff format and the league officially changed its name to National League A.

New Rules[edit]

There are a few changes of rules for the new season.

3-Point System[edit]

For the first time an NLA season is run with a 3-point system. A team gets now 3 points for a win after 60 minutes, instead of 2.

Overtime[edit]

A tied game after 60 minutes results in an overtime of 5 minutes, which is played 4 vs. 4 (this is not a rule change). But now, if a team scores a goal it gets two points while the other team also gets a point.

Penalty Shootout[edit]

If the game still remains tied after the overtime, there will be a penalty shootout with 3 shots per team. The winner team will get two points and the other team one point.
