What is icing in hockey?

In hockey, icing is when a player shoots the puck from behind the center line all the way to the goal line on the opposite end and no one touches it. But, when the goalie touches the puck it doesn't count. 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. @joinanswers ##icing ##hockey ##hockeyloverz ##hockeyguys ♬ original sound -
