Establishing Face-Off Locations Hand Pass / High Stick Face-Off Location Situations Hand passing the puck If a defending player in his/her defending zone bats the puck in the air with his/her hand, or pushes it along the ice with his/her hand, and a teammate in his defending zone is the first player to gain possession and control, no whistle is blown because there is no infraction. The puck must be in the defending zone both when the pass ORIGINATES and when it is COMPLETED.
Establishing Face-Off Locations In any other zone, if a player hand-passes the puck to a teammate, the whistle should be blown and the face-off takes place at the point where the puck was hand- passed.
Establishing Face-Off Locations If the hand pass is made backward to a teammate (the receiving player being closer to his defending zone than the passer), the face-off location is still at the point of the pass. This is one of the few times the offending team actually gains an ice territory advantage.
Establishing Face-Off Locations High Sticking the Puck High Sticking the Puck - If a player bats the puck with his/her stick above the normal height of his/her shoulders, and he/she or a teammate is the first to gain possession or control, the referee should blow the whistle to stop play. This is true in ANY zone.
Establishing Face-Off Locations The face-off takes place at one of the end zone face-off spots of the offending team. There are, however, exceptions...
Establishing Face-Off Locations If play is stopped for a high stick violation during a delayed off-side call against the team not in possession, the face-off will take place at the nearest neutral zone face-off spot. During a delayed penalty call, if the non- offending team commits a high stick violation, the face-off should take place at a neutral zone face-off spot near the defending zone of the team that high- sticked the puck.
