I think they take care of offsides, icing, and the face-off.
The term "icing" in hockey is "dÃ©gagement refusÃ©" in French.
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.
i don't know the rules
They call that icing.
In the NHL, there are two referees (who call penalties and signal goals) and two linsemen (who call offsides, icing, delay of game, and too many men).
For a variety of reasons: to start the game, after each goal is scored, and after each stoppage of play, like for icing, etc.
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 - Answers.com
Icing isn't a penalty, but if you ice the puck the face off will be in your end giving the other team better scoring position.
