The puck is not bounce resistant, but bouncing is controlled because they freeze them prior to-and during the games.

A warm (or room temperature) puck will bounce as it is rubber, however, once frozen, rubber loses its tendency to bounce.

According to Rule 24 concerning pucks in the NHL rulebook: "The home Team shall be responsible for providing an adequate supply of official pucks which shall be kept in a frozen condition. This supply of pucks shall be kept at the penalty bench under the control of one of the regular Off-Ice Officials or a special attendant."
