IIHF OFFICIAL RULE BOOK 2022/23

INTERNATIONAL ICE HOCKEY FEDERATION IIHF OFFICIAL RULE BOOK 2022/23 IIHF Official Rule Book 2022/23 – Version 1.0, July 2022

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 2 WELCOME No matter where ice hockey is played, the object of the game is the same - to put the puck into the opponent’s goal. Beyond that, ice hockey across the globe is subject to certain variations. This makes the rules of the game extremely important. These rules must be followed all times, in all countries, in all age categories, for the game to be enjoyed by everyone. Hockey’s speed is one of the qualities that makes it so exciting. But this skill and excitement must be balanced with fair play and respect. It is, therefore, important to make a clear separation between the purpose of all the elements of the game and to use these respectfully. These distinctions can be taught at an early age or whenever one begins to show interest in the game. And this is why hockey development begins with parents and coaches, those people most influential in guiding a person, old or young, into playing the game properly and within the rules. The IIHF Championship program encompasses 81 Member National Associations, five age and gender categories over 30 international ice hockey tournaments, including the Olympic Winter Games. The extensiveness of the program is acknowledged in the rule book. The goal is to provide everyone one set of rules from which to work. This presents a fair and leveled standard of play. It is a means of keeping the game’s “language” the same regardless of where it is played. INTERNATIONAL ICE HOCKEY FEDERATION TABLE OF CONTENTS

IIHF Official Rule Book 2022/23 – Version 1.0, July 2022 I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 3 GENERAL I NFORMAT I ON TABLE OF CONTENTS

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 4 OUR VALUES SOLIDARITY The rules are the basis for understanding the game, and the key tool for a player, coach, or association to explain and develop skills. The rule book can be understood as a common language, which we can use to communicate in standard way, making the sport as fair as possible.

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 5 OUR VALUES INTEGRITY Ice hockey is a team sport. No matter how great an individual player is, his or her teammates are essential to the team’s success. This is also what makes ice hockey so special. Apart from the physical skills required, it teaches values such as selflessness, team play, character, heart, dedication, leadership, and respect. The rules of ice hockey start with respecting the sport itself. This means complying with all rules regarding doping and match-fixing. It also means respecting coaches and officials, and playing within the boundaries of the on-ice code of conduct.

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 6 OUR VALUES SKILLS Ice hockey is the fastest and most thrilling of all team sports because it is a combination of two sports – skating and hockey. Skating is a complex skill but also very enjoyable, while the skills involved in playing hockey take dedication and practice to master. Skating requires strength, balance, and stamina. Once a player masters the ability to skate Backwards and Forwards, to turn and stop quickly, to get around a player or avoid a bodycheck, the enjoyment of the game truly grows. Ice hockey consists of three basic skills – stickhandling, passing, and shooting. Stickhandling requires superb hand-eye coordination, the ability to cradle a puck and feint an opponent at the right moment. Passing requires vision, timing, and anticipation. Shooting requires practice and strength and technique. What makes ice hockey so special and challenging is that a player must learn to combine those three essential hockey skills with the completely different skill of skating. It is two sports, not one, but when combined, this makes an incredible enjoyable experience.

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 7 OUR VALUES PASSION The passion for ice hockey exists everywhere, from the players to coaches, from parents to officials, to fans and volunteers. Hockey cannot exist without this passion. It is a spark, one that can ignite the moment you pick up a stick and hit the ice for the first time. Whenever that moment happens, whether you are a child or an adult, it remains a part of you for life.

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 8 OUR VALUES DISCIPLINE & RESPECT Everyone wants to win but winning at all costs can show a lack of respect for the game. Respect has nothing to do with the puck or the opposition goal. It is about humanity. It is about ensuring that every person can play in a safe and enjoyable environment, regardless of their skill level, size, shape, race, gender, sexual orientation, or beliefs. It is about encouraging people of all colors and religions, from all countries and all backgrounds. It is about including, not excluding, about celebrating, not denigrating. Hockey is a celebration of teamwork and opportunity and meeting a challenge together. That is the obligation of everyone who plays the game – keep the game safe and fair!

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 9 OUR VALUES PRINCIPLES OF THE GAME No proper game can be played without the Game Officials (Referees and Linespersons), and they must command the respect of all players, coaches, parents, and associations involved at all levels of play. To love ice hockey and to want to play ice hockey starts with showing respect for the Game Officials who oversee the game. They have spent years developing their skills, which include being as good a skater as the players. As well, they have had to hone their own subset of skills - quick movements to stay out of the way of play, understanding and interpreting play while moving at top speed in a variety of directions, applying the rule book properly under pressure and at a moment’s notice. And although the main responsibility for this respect of play lies with the players, it is vital to the game’s safety and success that it includes the coaches, parents, federations, associations, and leagues under whose supervision the game is played. In the end, the final score is the deciding factor in determining who wins and loses the game. But the spirit of fair play is even more important because it enables the game to succeed and grow and develop, in both countries where ice hockey is an ingrained part of its culture and ithers where it is an emerging sport with growing roots.

I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 10 OUR VALUES FOR THE GOOD OF THE GAME. To love the game is to value it, and to value it is to respect it. Ice hockey is a game built around speed and skill, elements which make it appealing to people around the world, but which inherently create a danger if not played properly. The game’s success depends on it being played fairly at all levels. That means adhering to the rules of the game, listening to coaches, and respecting the function of the Referees and Linespersons – for the good of the game!
