Did a team ever get charged with icing the puck when they were killing off a penalty?

I suppose that it may have happened at some point in history, but the rule is clearly defined to not apply to the penalty killing team. This allows the shorthanded team to relieve the pressure in the defensive zone. The team on the power play *can* be charged with icing. Icing is NOT a penalty in hockey. It is called, by the linesman, the play is stopped, and a face off takes place back where the puck was shot from.

What is iced 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 -
