What Is Icing?


(Colorado Eagles Hockey, 2012)

Today, in 1937, "the NHL Board of Governors introduced legislation that discouraged 'icing' during the League's semi-annual meeting. The new rules would cause a face-off in the defending zone if a team shot the puck all the way down the ice without scoring a goal" (Today in Sports, n.d.).
