Entries with the tag: icing
A few years ago, the NHL made a change to the way icing infractions are handled. It had always been the case that after the stoppage of play, the ensuing faceoff took place in the offending team’s defensive zone. The post-lockout change was that the offending team could not make a line change. This summer, the NHL has made an additional change to icing, but it isn’t the one we all wanted to see. Instead of going with no-touch icing, the league is going with no TV timeout icing.
