IIHF OFFICIAL RULE BOOK 2023/24

TABLE OF CONTENTS IIHF OFFICIAL RULE BOOK 2023/24 – SECTION 04 55 TYPES OF PENALTIES In order for a “Penalty Shot” to be awarded for a Player being fouled from behind, the following four (4) criteria must have been met: (I) The infraction must have taken place in the Neutral or Attacking Zone (i.e., over the puck carrier’s own Blue Line); (II) The infraction must have been committed from behind (except a foul committed from the front by the Goalkeeper on a “breakaway” situation); (III) The Player in “possession and control” (or, in the judgment of the Referee, the Player clearly would have “obtained possession and control” of the puck) must have been denied a reasonable chance to score. The fact that the Player got a shot off does not automatically eliminate this play from the “Penalty Shot” consideration criteria. If the foul was from behind and the Player was denied a “more reasonable scoring opportunity” due to the foul, then the “Penalty Shot” should still be awarded; (IV) The Player in “possession and control” (or, in the judgment of the Referee, the Player clearly would have “obtained possession and control”) must have had no opposing Player between themself and the Goalkeeper. If, in the opinion of the Referee, a Player makes contact with the puck first and subsequently trips the opponent in so doing, no “Penalty Shot” will be awarded, but a Minor Penalty for “tripping” shall be assessed. It should be noted that if the attacking Player manages to get around the Goalkeeper and has no defending Player between them and the “open goal”, and they are fouled from behind by the Goalkeeper or another defending Player, no goal can be awarded since the Goalkeeper is still on the ice. A “Penalty Shot” would be awarded. ➔ For a list of the infractions that shall result in a penalty shot being awarded refer to Appendix IV – Tables Overview – Table 11. RULE 25 AWARDED GOALS 25.1. AWARDED GOAL A goal will be awarded to the attacking Team when the opposing Team has taken their Goalkeeper off the ice and an attacking Player has “possession and control of the puck” (or “would have gained possession and control”) in the Neutral or Attacking Zone, without a defending Player between themself and the opposing goal, and they are “prevented from scoring” as a result of an infraction committed by the defending Team. ➔ Rule 25.3 – Infractions when Goalkeeper is Off the Ice. 25.2. INFRACTIONS – WHEN GOALKEEPER IS ON THE ICE A goal will be awarded when an attacking Player with “an imminent scoring opportunity”, is “prevented from scoring” as a result of a defending Player displacing the Goal Post, either “deliberately or accidentally” and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the Goal between the normal position of the Goal Posts. ➔ Rule 63.7 – Awarded Goal. 25.3. INFRACTIONS – WHEN GOALKEEPER IS OFF THE ICE A list of the infractions that shall result in an awarded goal when the goalkeeper has been removed for an extra attacker can be found in Table 12. ➔ For more information refer to Appendix IV – Tables Overview – Table 12. 25.4. INFRACTIONS – DURING THE COURSE OF A “PENALTY SHOT” A goal will be awarded when a Goalkeeper attempts to stop a “Penalty Shot” by throwing their stick or any other object at the 04 SECTION · TYPES OF PENALTIES
