Best Answer

Shooting the puck (ball) into the opposing zone before the center ice (court) line, without that same shooting teams ability to retrieve it first, results in an icing call being made.

However, during a penalty kill, icing is negated allowing the disadvantaged team to clear the puck (ball) all the way down the ice (floor) from any area.

When a Team X shoots or passes the puck from their side of the red line (at center ice) and it crosses Team Y's goal line (about 10 ft from the boards) and then a player from Team Y must touch the puck first. If a player from Team X touches the puck first, it nullifies the icing.

I have played hockey since i was like 3. "Icing" is when you shoot the puck all the way down the ice without it being on net, hitting another player, or hitting the boards before it hits the goalline. If you shoot the puck into the zone when your on the other teams side of the Red Line then its OK. You can also ice it when your on penalty kill, (when your team has a penalty) If an icing is about to be called, the ref will put his hand and arm straight up into the air. The following faceoff will be in the team that iced it's zone, on the faceoff dot

A puck shot from your side of the centre ice line which crosses the end line (horizontal extension of the goal line) without touching a player or his stick. Note, icing can be waved off if the puck is touched first by a players from the team which shot the puck in.

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.

Icing is when the puck crosses over both the center red line and the goal line (and does not enter the goal).

What does the word icing mean when used by someone from Australia?

There isn't really, to my knowledge, a different usage of the word 'icing' by Australians. I even asked my friend, who is Australian. Anyway, here's some other usages of the word. In hockey it is when a player shoots the puck across the center red line and past the opposing team's red goal line. Icing will not be called if the player's team is on a penalty kill or if an attacking or defending goaltender touches the puck first. In Punjabi language, it means to throw up. ----Shawn
