1 Northern Ontario Hockey Association Two Official SystemNorthern Ontario Hockey Association
2 Two Official System - Referee Ice is divided by the centre red lineReferees will conduct all face-offs in the half they are currently responsible forReferee not taking face-off will conduct line change procedureBlow and Go, the referee will pick up the puck in the half he is responsible for and conduct the face-off
3 General Guidelines Each referee covers 2/3 of the total ice surface The coverage overlaps in the neutral zone
4 General GuidelinesAs the front official, do not let the play pass you in the neutral zoneIf you are in path of players and puck is in neutral zone, move towards your blue lineNever climb boards as it will leave you out of position and puts you in vulnerable positionShould always be at, or just inside the blueline prior to the puck and playersWhen you are front official, must be at centre red line as puck approaches to effectively call icingsAs the back official watch for fouls in front of the net; your partner may be watching play in the corner or along the boards
5 R2 R1 Positioning While Play is in Progress TimekeeperR2R1When puck is dropped, R2 must go with the puck whether left or right in order to be at the blue line as the puck crosses and R1 skates backwards to the boards after dropping the puckThe official taking the face-off should face the penalty bench so that the timekeeper can start the clock when puck is droppedTo start game, or any face-off at centre ice, two officials should be positioned long centre red line facing each other.
6 R2R1In these positions, R2 can watch the play in the end zone and R1 can watch for off-sides and must also watch the end zone play away from the puckAs the puck moves into the end zone, R2 must follow the play and begin to implement his End Zone Positioning.R1 moves up the boards and takes a position just outside the blue line, at an angle facing the play
7 At all times the two officials are in a diagonal position relative to one another, no further than one line apartR2R2R2R2R1R1R1R1
8 Positioning for Face-Offs F.O.G – Free Official Goes Neutral ZoneR2R1F.O.G – Free Official GoesThe official not conducting the face-off (R2) should be prepared to move in either direction while referee conducting face-off skates backward to board when safeThis allows for all lines to be covered
9 Positioning for Face-Offs End Zone30cm-1mR2R1HBReferee not conducting face-off (R2) is positioned just outside the blue line – 30cm to 1m from the boards. May move further from boards to get a clear view of players behind R1.Referee (R1) drops puck and backs to Home Base. If puck stays deep, practice End Zone Positioning.
10 Face-Off Zone ChangesOnce official (R2) has taken his position after centre ice face-off, he is responsible for face-offs and positioning in that half of the ice, R1 is responsible for other halfOfficials maintain responsibility for face-offs until one of the following situations arise:Penalty is assessedAny neutral zone face-off (start of period, after goal, off-side, hand pass, etc.)
11 In this situation, the officials have changed ends Positioning when a Penalty is Assessed – Example #1R1R2R2R1R2 now assumes the responsibility for face-offs and positioning in this end zone, while R1 handles line change procedureR1 takes up position outside blue line or across from R2 in the neutral zone depending on where the face-off takes placeIn this situation, the officials have changed endsR2 retrieves the puck and proceeds to the face-off spot for the ensuing face-offR1 reports a penalty to the scorekeeper
12 In this situation, the officials have not changed ends Positioning when a Penalty is Assessed – Example #2R2R2R1If R2 assesses the penalty, he will report the penalty to the timekeeper and R1 will retrieve the puck and conduct the ensuing face-off.In this situation, the officials have not changed endsR2 will assume position outside the blue line or across from R1 in the neutral done depending on the location of the face-off
13 Positioning When a Goal is Scored R1 must be ready to go left or right depending on the direction of the puck on the face-off and procedures are now the same as for the start of the gameR2 goes to centre ice for the ensuing face-off, and R1 takes his position on the centre red line facing R2R1 signals the goal and reports it to the scorekeeper. In the meantime, R2 retrieves the puckA goal is scored in R1’s end
14 Common Faults and TipsFailure of the official responsible for attacking zone to leave zone quickly in pursuit of playWhen stoppage in play at the net, move to At the Net position immediately to reduce conflict between players; presence and communication will act as deterrent for altercations after the whistleIf puck carrier is attacking player hold position a little longer as they will normally go to the net and you can followIf puck carrier is defending player, retreat to home base as play generally goes up the boards
15 Two Official System – True or False Penalties can be assessed by either Referee anywhere on the ice.When the puck is dropped at centre ice, the official not dropping the puck goes the direction of the puck to ensure someone is at the blue line for a potential off-side.For neutral ice face-offs, the official not dropping the puck should hold the line for his partner until he is in position.When a goal is scored the front linesman will signal the goal and report it the scorekeeper. The other official will retrieve the puck and go to the centre to conduct the face-off.When a penalty is being assessed, the official will assess the penalty and report it to the scorekeeper. The other official will retrieve the puck for his partner and give it to him to conduct the face-off upon returning to the position.TRUETRUETRUETRUEFALSE
16 Two Official System – Multiple Choice While play is in progress the back official should watch the following:a) The play in the entire end zoneb) For any off-sides at the bluelinec) The play that is away from the puckd) All of the aboveWhich official is responsible for performing the line change procedure?The official taking the face-offThe official not taking the face-offThe official nearest the benchesThe line change procedure is not used in the two official systemThe official who assessed and reported the penalty will:Go back to their original positionTake his position outside the blueline or across from his partner in the neutral zone depending on the positionGo where the face-off will occur and drop the puckNone of the aboveAlthough coverage overlaps in the neutral zone, each official is responsible for covering:One halfOne quarterTwo thirdsOnly the play immediately around them
