Uh, OUCH?!

Funny story...
One day we were at the minor league hockey game here in Trenton.  One of the players launched a puck WAY up into the 3rd level in the stands.  There was one guy sitting up there, all by himself.  He nonshalantly held up his hand and caught the puck.
The crowd went wild.  (It was hysterical after all).  The staff from the arena brought him a beer.

I can't figure out if the 'hawks are good, or the teams they play just suck.  Although I did thoroughly enjoy the game last night.

The Hawks are legitimately good and the Coyotes legitimately suck balls this year.

When I saw this live, I was pretty impressed by how he just kept going. It was kind of unnerving though to see him halfway through a sentence and then realize that his mouth was filling up with blood. He had a little hesitation but then kept it up, even making memory loss jokes on his after-intermission report.

Incidentally, does he count as "the bench" for delay of game penalty purposes?

Yes. The puck must go OVER the glass and into the stands for there to be a penalty.

What is icing?

You're goddamn right it is (don't understand why it can't just be icing - no change, F/O in your D-zone)! Between that and Cam Ward turning back the clock to 2006... cost the Sens a win last night.

By rule, it's when one team, from their own side of centre, fires the puck all the way down to the other end of the rink. The rule is in place to prevent it being used as defensive strategy (i.e. "Oh crap! We're pinned in our zone and can't get anything going. I better just chuck it down the ice, get a change, and go from there.")  The league wants to discourage that, and encourage transition offence, so the penalty is that you <i>can't</i> change, and the next faceoff is in your defensive zone. Does that make sense?

So the only thing preventing a player from whipping it into the opposing bench (or at the poor rink-side reporter) to stop play is what... professional courtesy / threat of beatdown?

Oh that makes sense.  Kinda like intentional grounding.  What if the shot was towards the goal at the other end?

tchau: Oh that makes sense. Kinda like intentional grounding. What if the shot was towards the goal at the other end?


If anyone on the other team touches the puck, such as the goalie having to stop it from going in, play just continues.  Also, if the refs deem that a player could have stopped the puck, play continues.  In other words, you can't just watch the puck go over the line to get the call and you can't loaf back after it.

tchau: What if the shot was towards the goal at the other end?


If it hits the net or the goalie plays the puck, icing is negated.

If it's clearly intentional and deliberate, that player can be assessed a delay of game and/or unsportsmanlike penalty. Then he will probably get his ass beat when he gets out of the box.

Rev.K: tchau: What if the shot was towards the goal at the other end?

And, of course, if it goes in the net, it's a goal.

tchau: Oh that makes sense.  Kinda like intentional grounding.  What if the shot was towards the goal at the other end?


As you've seen (from others' posts), there are a few exceptions. Often you'll see a guy pretty much straddling the centre line near the boards, and a teammate will shoot the puck towards him so he can deflect it just a bit, thereby negating icing, and then go off for a change. Sometimes they miss, which is awkward, since they were probably already spent, considering they tried that lazy play, rather than actually carry the puck across centre.

Also, when one team is on a power play*, the team with fewer skaters is afforded the luxury of unlimited, consequence-free icing while their player is in the penalty box. This encourages the team on the PP to engage in more of a 'puck possesion' style while in the offensive zone, rather than 'dump and chase' (which involves just that, dumping the puck in, and hoping your guys can beat their guys to the puck).

They could call it the EMO.  Sound better that way?

Also, "no-touch icing".  Sounds goofy, but not a bad concept.

If it looks intentional, the refs could give a penalty then. Otherwise, do as Loomy suggested and treat it like icing.

Heh, thanks! But I'm not the newcomer; I was meaning for that sentence to be asking <b>tchau</b>, since he wouldn't've grown up with 'power play' as part of the verbiage. It just struck me one day how silly it could sound to someone just being introduced to the concept (just imagine it being shouted by a Monster Truck Rally announcer impersonating Lady Gaga: "P-P-P-Power Playyyy!"), compared to more self-explanatory hockey terms like 'face-off', 'slapshot', or 'hipcheck'. It <i>sounds</i> like a name thought up during the same meeting as the glowpuck, but it's actually been a part of the game/rulebook for ages. I guess I just like how normal it sounds to us hockey fans, despite itself.

People in hockey scare me a little. Of course, then there's the "Skate With The Team" nights with my local AHL team - nicest bunch of guys you'd want to meet.

In short, hockey is awesome.

:) I've heard of power play, and hat tricks, and throwing octopuses out into the rink before, but never really researched them.

Just like I have absolutely no idea what off sides is in soccer, but I can tell you all the stupid rules of baseball and football.
