Each regular season Slovenská hokejová liga game is composed of three 20-minute periods, with an intermission of a maximum of 18 minutes between periods.[2] If the game is tied following the 60-minute regulation time, a five-minute three-on-three sudden death overtime period is played. If a game still is tied after the overtime period, a shootout decides the game. In a shootout, the team that scores the most penalty shots out of five attempts wins the game. If the game is still tied after the first five penalty-shot rounds, the shootout continues round by round, until one team scores while the other team fails to score.


Ten clubs play in the 2020–21 Slovak 1. Liga season.
