    NEW USA HOCKEY RULE CHANGES

    Every 4 years USA Hockey reviews the rule book and makes changes.  Proposed changes can be made by anyone, all you need to do is go the USA Hockey website and email them a proposed rule change to review.  This was the year for changes.  There were 75 rule modifications.  Here are a (3) three that you will notice changes in this season compared to last season. *

     

    Rule 612 (b) Face-Off Locations

    • All face-offs will occur on one of the 9 face off dot locations.  In the past the face off occurred where ever the pass was made from, or where the play left a stick from or where it was deflected from.

     

    Rule 612(c) Face-Off Locations

    • If an offensive player shoots a puck inside the offensive zone and it deflects off the cross bar the faceoff occurs in the zone where it went off the crossbar.  In previous years the face off would have been in the neutral zone.

     

    Rule 624(b) Icing the Puck

    • As a U14 and under (Bantams, 15U, Pee Wee, 12U, Squirts, 10U) while on a power play, teams will NOT be able to ice the puck.  If the puck is iced in a short-handed situation, the play will stop and a face off will occur in the defensive zone.  In previous year players were allowed to ice the puck while short-handed.  This rule has been tested for over 10 years.  USA Hockey believes this will increase skill development among the players.

    *Coaches should you have any questions regarding the new rules please contact Mike Mooney for further information.
