- icing occurs when a player shoots the puck from within his own half of the rink across the opponent's goal line. Icing is waved-off if the team icing the puck is shorthanded or a player from the defending team could have played the puck before it crossed the goal line or if a player of the icing team plays the puck before it crosses the goal line.
