Format[edit]

The preliminary round is a two group of five teams each internal round-robin format, followed by a three-round playoff. In the round-robin, two points are allotted for a win, and one additional point for a regulation win. One point is allotted for an overtime or game winning shots loss.

The four highest-ranked teams from each group of the preliminary round advance to the quarterfinals while the last-place team from each group will play a best-of-three series, the loser relegated to Division IA for 2019. All other teams will retain their Top Division status.[3]
