Best Answer

In both Ice Hockey and Lacrosse, the faceoff is a method of starting play. Two players on opposite teams stand facing each other; the ball or puck is placed between them and either can begin vying for it. In Field Hockey, such a play is called a bully; a Faceoff refers to a trademarked Obo product, a protective mask for defenders to use at penalty corners. The term has also come to be used in many areas outside of these, to describe a similar situation where two players compete for an advantage of some kind. It is sometimes described as a head-to-head and a showdown as well.

Can you be in motion during a faceoff in hockey?

The ref usually waits until all players are in position before dropping the puck. No player can go offside (cross onto the opponent's side of the faceoff) or get too close to the faceoff dot before the puck is dropped. The center (the player taking the faceoff) cannot have a false start. If any of this happens, the center is kicked out of the circle. If the player replacing the center is kicked out as well, then it is a delay of game penalty.
