TABLE OF CONTENTS IIHF OFFICIAL RULE BOOK 2023/24 – SECTION 04 54 TYPES OF PENALTIES 24.5. FACE-OFF LOCATION If a goal is scored from a “Penalty Shot”, the puck shall be faced-off at Center ice. If a goal is not scored, the puck shall be faced-off at either of the end Face-off Spots in the zone in which the “Penalty Shot” was attempted, except when another rule dictates the “face-off” location should be in an alternate location, such as when the “point men” enter the zone beyond the outer edge of the End - Zone Face-off Circle or when the attacking Team has been penalized on the same play. ➔ Rule 76.2 – Face-off Locations. 24.6. RESULTS Should a goal be scored from a “Penalty Shot”, a further penalty to the offending Player shall not be applied unless the offense for which the “Penalty Shot” was awarded is a Major or Misconduct Penalty, in which case the appropriate penalty shall be imposed. If the offense for which the “Penalty Shot” was awarded would normally incur a Minor Penalty, then regardless of the outcome of the “Penalty Shot”, no further Minor Penalty shall be served. If the offense for which the “Penalty Shot” was awarded was to incur a Double-minor Penalty, or where the offending Team is assessed an additional Minor Penalty on the same play, the first Minor Penalty is not assessed since the “Penalty Shot” was awarded to restore the lost scoring opportunity. The second Minor Penalty would be assessed and served regardless of whether the “Penalty Shot” results in a goal. This will be announced as a Double-minor Penalty for the appropriate foul and the Player will serve two (2) minutes only. No penalty shall expire when a goal is scored against a Team on a “Penalty Shot”. Should two (2) “Penalty Shots” be awarded to the same Team at the same stoppage of play (two (2) separate fouls), only one (1) goal can be scored or awarded at a single stoppage of play. Should the first “Penalty Shot” result in a goal, the second “Penalty Shot” would not be taken but the appropriate penalty would be assessed and served for the infraction committed. 24.7. TIMING If the foul upon which the “Penalty Shot” is based occurs during actual playing time, the “Penalty Shot” shall be awarded and taken immediately in the usual manner notwithstanding any delay occasioned by a slow whistle by the Referee to allow play to continue until the attacking side has lost possession of the puck to the defending side, to which this delay results in the expiry of the regular playing time in any period. The time required for the taking of a “Penalty Shot” shall not be included in the regular playing time or Overtime. 24.8. INFRACTIONS When a Player, in the Neutral or Attacking Zone, in “control” of the puck (or who could have obtained “possession and control” of the puck) and having no other opponent to pass than the Goalkeeper, is fouled from behind, thus preventing a reasonable scoring opportunity, a “Penalty Shot” shall be awarded to the non-offending Team. Nevertheless, the Referee shall not stop play until the attacking Team has “lost possession” of the puck to the defending Team. The intention of this rule is to restore a reasonable “scoring opportunity” which has been lost. If, however, the Player fouled is able to recover and obtain a “reasonable scoring opportunity” (or a Teammate is able to gain a reasonable scoring opportunity), no “Penalty Shot” should be awarded but the appropriate penalty should be signaled and assessed if a goal is not scored on the play. “Control of the puck” means the act of propelling the puck with the stick, hand, or feet. 04 SECTION · TYPES OF PENALTIES
