Yes, there is offsides in Olympic hockey. Olympic rules are basically the same as NHL rules, except for icing. Icing in Olympic hockey is automatically blown down as icing whereas in the NHL, the team that iced the puck must beat the other team to the puck for it not to be icing.
NHL rules state the puck will be one inch thick and three inches in diameter. The puck should weigh between five and a half and six ounces.
A standard ice hockey puck weighs between 5.5 and 6 ounces (156-170 g).
The average lifespan of an NHL hockey puck is 7 minutes.
There are a few differences between the two, most having to do with rules: * In Olympic hockey, the rink is longer and wider. * Goaltenders in the NHL are only allowed to play the puck behind the goal line within an octagonal shape marked by a visible line out from the back of the net. Olympic goaltenders can play the puck anywhere behind the net. * In the NHL when a player shoots the puck down the ice from his own half of the center line an opposing player must touch the puck first before icing is called. Olympic hockey uses "no touch" icing which means play is whistled dead as soon as the puck crosses the goal line. * If an Olympic player fights he is ejected from the game, whereas NHL players just serve a 5 minute penalty. These are just a few key examples, as naturally there are other differences. Basically, NHL play is more aggressive while Olympic hockey is more passive and positional.

Regulation National Hockey League (NHL) pucks are black, 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, 1 inch (2.54 cm) thick, and weigh 5.5 to 6 oz (154-168 g).
60 every game. The clock does not tick without the puck in play.
The trapezoid is the only place that the goalies are allowed to play the puck. This is a rule that came into the NHL during the lockout, what it does is it makes the game go faster because the goalie can no longer play the puck outside the trapezoid and freeze it or try to move the puck from there.
It looked like an ordinary hockey puck you would use in an NHL game.

R2 I think.
A goalie can throw, kick, pass, bat, or spit out of his mouth if necessary, the puck at anytime while the puck is still active and game is in play.
According to the NHL rules, a hockey puck must be 3 inches = 76,200,000 nanometres in diameter.
I'm sorry to say, I'm not sure what English hockey is like, but I can tell you the differences between the NHL and similar leagues (such as the AHL) and international hockey (as is played in the olympics) The primary three differences are: 1) An international hockey rink is wider than an NHL or AHL rink. 2) If the puck is "iced" (cleared down the ice from behind half way, to the area behind the net) in international play, it is immediately called when it crosses the line, while in the NHL, the players can race to the puck, if the team that iced it touches it first, the icing is not called. 3) There is a trapezoid behind the net in the NHL. If the goalie handles the puck behind the net, but outside of the trapezoid, there is a 2 minute penalty for delay of game. There is no such trapezoid in international hockey. These are the main differences between international hockey and the NHL. While this is not a direct answer, if you know whether or not English hockey is played by the same rules as Olympic hockey, this may answer your question.
If a team not killing a penalty shoots the puck down the ice from beyond the redline and it does not pass through the goal crease it is considered icing.
