TABLE OF CONTENTS I I HF OFF I C I AL RULE BOOK 2022 / 23 – SECT I ON 05 87 OFF I C I ALS A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking Player’s skate who does not use a “distinct kicking motion” shall be ruled a “good goal”. A puck that is directed into the net by an attacking Players’ skate shall also be ruled a “good goal”, as long as no “distinct kicking motion” is evident. ➔ Rule 49.2. – Kicking / Goals. 37.5. PUCK STRUCK WITH A HIGH STICK The determining factor for high stick Video Review is where the puck makes contact with the stick in relation to the crossbar. If the puck makes contact with a portion of the stick that is at or below the level of the crossbar (despite some other portion of the stick being above the crossbar) and enters the goal, the goal shall be allowed. ➔ Rule 80.3. – High-sticking the Puck. 37.6. VIDEO REVIEW TO VERIFY TIME ON CLOCK The IIHF Video Review Operations may use Video Review to establish the correct time on the clock. The “burn in” of the Game Clock is mandatory for the two overhead goal video feeds and should be made available by the host broadcaster on as many additional feeds as possible. Any loss of time on the game or penalty clocks due to a false “face-off”, a “face-off” violation or a puck going out of play must be replaced. The IIHF Video Review Operations may be consulted or may intervene with On- and Off-Ice Officials directly, as appropriate, to ensure that any loss of time on the game or penalty clocks due to these situations is properly replaced. ➔ Rule 76.8 – Face-off Procedure / Verification of Time, ➔ Rule 85.7 – Puck Out of Bounds / Verification of Time. In the event of any dispute regarding time, the matter shall be referred to the IIHF Video Review Operations for adjustment, and its decision shall be final. The Game Timekeeper shall assist to verify game time via an additional timing device (IIHF- approved stopwatch). In the event a Video Review shows that a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the IIHF Video Review Operations will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorekeeper of the time of the goal and the amount of playing time left to be re-set on the Game Clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable). ➔ Rule 34.7 – Game Timekeeper / Verification of Time. 37.7. GOAL JUDGE BEHIND THE NETS – NO VIDEO REVIEW AVAILABLE In IIHF Championships where Video Review is not used, Goal Judges shall be used. There shall be one Goal Judge situated behind each goal (or in an area designated and approved by the IIHF), in properly protected areas, if possible, so that there can be no interference with their activities. They shall not change goals during the game. The Goal Judge shall signal, normally by means of red light, a decision as to whether the puck passed between the Goal Posts and entirely over the Goal Line. The only decision the Goal Judge must make is whether the puck actually entered the net, not how or when it went in. The light must be illuminated for a period of five (5) seconds each time the puck enters the net regardless of circumstances. It is up to the Referee to make the final decision. »For more information refer to IIHF Technology Codes & Regulations. 0 5 S E C T I ON · O F F I C I A L S
