Delayed Calling of Penalty
i. When the referee calls a penalty but the offending side do not have control of the puck.  Because the referee will blow his whistle as soon as the penalised team gain control of the puck, they cannot score a goal and the goalie of the side getting the advantage will therefore leave the ice so that his team can add an extra attacker.  
ii. Officials' Signal
- the official raises one arm straight out above his head and points to the penalized player with the other arm.
Delayed Off-side (Slow Whistle)
i. When an attacking player crosses the blue line ahead of the puck, but the defending team collects the puck and clears the zone.
ii. Officials' Signal
- the official raises his "non-whistle arm" straight out above his head. If play returns to the neutral zone without stoppage of play he puts his arm down the instant the puck crosses the line.
