In the NHL, if a game is forfeited the loser gets score 0 and the winner gets 1 or higher if the game was forfeited after it started already and the winner scored more than 1 goal. All personal stats for players from both teams are recorded if some portion of the game was played.
But how is it with shutouts?
There are different scenarios, supposing that Team A is the forfeit team and 1 goalkeeper from each team plays the whole match.
- score at the end was Team A 0:0 Team B
- score at the end was Team A 2:2 Team B
- game ended after 5 minutes
- game ended at time 59:50
- (only for option 1) game ended after overtime and a shootout was not held because the forfeit occurred after overtime
In all scenarios, when will each team and/or each goalkeeper be credited with a shutout?
