FRISCO, Texas — The 2014 Robertson Cup champion will be determined by a play-down format, consisting of four separate rounds over the course of six weeks, the NAHL announced Monday.

“We are excited to be moving to a more traditional playoff format and are eager to see it in action,” NAHL commissioner Mark Frankenfeld said in a press release. “It offers a very competitive atmosphere for the players and teams, and is a pure test of attrition to determine our national champion. This shift in format enhances the level of excitement for the fans and increases the level of competition for those on the ice that are giving their all to have their names permanently engraved on the Robertson Cup.
