At USA Hockey's Annual Congress, several rule changes were voted into effect that will be implemented in the 2017-2018 season.
The significant changes include:
- 601(e.2) Abuse of Officials and Other Misconduct - Changes language for racial/ethnic slur to include any language that is
“offensive, hateful or discriminatory in nature”.
- 612(b) Face-Off Locations - All face-offs must be conducted at one of the nine designated face-off spots.
- 624(b) Icing the Puck - Eliminate the ability of a shorthanded team to legally ice the puck for 14U
age classifications and below.
The other rule changes mostly clarify/further define existing language and rules. The full list (Youth Edition) can be found here:
