By Dave Zednik, IHOA VP of Rules & Ethics


QUESTION: An attacking player shoots the puck from the neutral zone (attacking side of the center red line) which strikes off the crossbar and out of play. Where is the face-off located?

ANSWER: The face-off will be located in the attacking zone, at the end-zone face-off spot located on the side of the ice from where the puck was shot.
