Olympic Men's Hockey Standings

I have looked and looked and have not been able to find a website that shows the Olympic Hockey Standings as they relate to moving on to the Qualifiers and Quarterfinals, etc. So I made this table up and am posting it here for others.

I will try to maintain it until I find a website that shows something similar.

Rank Team GP REG WIN OT/SOW OTL L Group Rank Pts GF-GA GF 2013 IIHF Ranking
1 Sweden 3 3 0 0 0 1 9 5 10 1
2 USA 3 2 1 0 0 1 8 11 15 6
3 Canada 3 2 1 0 0 1 8 9 10 5
4 Finland 3 2 0 1 0 2 7 8 15 2
5 Russia 3 1 1 1 0 2 6 2 7 3
6 Switzerland 3 2 0 0 1 2 6 1 2 7
7 Czech Republic 3 1 0 0 2 3 3 -1 6 4
8 Slovenia 3 1 0 0 2 3 3 -5 6 17
9 Austria 3 1 0 0 2 3 3 -8 7 15
10 Slovakia 3 0 0 1 2 4 1 -8 2 8
11 Latvia 3 0 0 0 3 4 0 -5 5 11
12 Norway 3 0 0 0 3 4 0 -9 3 9

The columns to the right of the losses are the tie breakers in decreasing order of importance.

A quick refresher on how the tournament is handled after the round-robin match ups is as follows:

1) Teams ranked 1-4 get a bye through the qualifier round

2) The Qualifier round pits Russia vs Norway, Switzerland vs Latvia, Czech Rep vs Slovakia, Slovenia vs Austria.

3) The winners of the Qualifier are matched up against the original top 4 teams for the Quarterfinals

  • Winner of Russia vs Norway plays Finland
  • Winner of Switzerland vs Latvia plays Canada
  • Winner of Czech Rep vs Slovakia plays USA
  • Winner of Slovenia vs Austria plays Sweden

4) The winners of the Quarterfinals move to the Semifinals

  • Winner of (Slovenia vs Austria) v Sweden plays winner of (Russia vs Norway) v Finland
  • Winner of (Czech Rep vs Slovakia) v USA plays winner of (Switzerland vs Latvia) v Canada

5) The winners of the Semifinals compete for Gold and Silver

6) The losers of the Semifinals compete for Bronze
