Yes, but still cannot interfere with the goalie.
only in the crease
Obviously, that would be up to the discretion of the referee but from attempting to literally intrepret the question, I would say no. According to National Hockey League rules, there seem to be two instances related to the situation mentioned in the question where penalty shots are awarded when the puck is in the crease: 1) A player falls on the puck in the goal crease 2) A player picks up the puck in the goal crease with his hand. SInce it sounds like the player was already on the ice and did nothing to attempt to cover the puck in the crease, and the player did not pick up or grip the puck while in the crease, I would interpret the rules to mean that a penalty shot would not be awarded. I would be interested in knowing the opinions of others on this situation.
If this happens................ The player can touch the puck with his hand in the defesive zone, but if he does close his hand on the puck in the crease than a goal can be awarded if there is no goalie If there is a goalie then the other team can have a penalty shot.
The rule is that if a player closes his hand on the puck in the goal crease, then a penalty shot is awarded, if the goalie has been pulled when a penalty shot is awarded, then the referee awards a goal to the team instead.
Not with his hand if the goalie is in the crease. However, a player may fall (lay) on his goaltender, inadvertently covering the puck with his body.
Yes. In the sport of ice hockey there's a goalie crease. It's a small area just in front of the net, which allows the goaltender to move and/or handle the puck without interference.
I'm pretty sure there isn't, unless they call you for crease violation, if you are in the crease before the puck. The goal would not count no matter where you kick it from.
If you are the offensive player, and any part of your body is in the crease when the puck isn't, then the ref blows the whistle and the faceoff is outside attacking zone in the neutral zone.The player in the crease does not get a minor penalty.
THE PUCK, you play hockey to get the puck.
a hockey puck...
Hockey is played in many countries around the world. It is played on ice with a puck. The area of a hockey puck is 22.18.
The circumference of a hockey puck is approximately 9.5 inches.
The hockey puck was invented so hockey players had something to shoot into the goal.
Players in their defensive zone can hand pass the puck to anyone in the defensive zone; therefore, they can "shovel" the puck under their goalie in the crease to stop play. Play would be stopped provided the goalie was in check by an attacking player; otherwise, the goalie would be given a minor penalty if he didn't get rid of the puck within 3 secs. This penalty rule is at the discretion of the referee. With regards to penalties and penalty shots associated to players playing the puck with their hands: If any player other than the goalie closes his hand on the puck or picks the puck off the ice with his hand "OUTSIDE" of the goal crease, a minor penalty will be assessed most likely a delay of game. If any player other than the goalie closes his hand on the puck or picks the puck off the ice with his hand "INSIDE" the crease, a penalty or penalty shot will be awarded to the non-offending team. (at the discretion of the referee)
The modern hockey puck was invented around 1875.
A puck stopper is another name for a goaltender in hockey.
Hockey is a sport that you need a puck for. The puck is something in hockey that you whack with a stick into a net to gain points.
The surface area also depends on the thickness of the puck.

No, skaters cannot intentionally cover the puck or else it's a 2:00 delay of game penalty against the player. If the puck is covered by a skater in the crease, a penalty shot is awarded to the opposing team. The crease is the painted area in front of the goal, and that area extends upward from the ice surface up to infinity. (Think of a half cylinder extending upwards from the ice.) If a defending skater cups his hand around the puck or otherwise covers it while in this "half cylinder" a penalty shot is awarded. The puck does not have to be touching the ice.
A standard ice hockey puck is one (1) inch thick.
