E) FIXED SITUATIONS
1. Face-off :
A face off is a way to start the game. You use it:
-At the start of a new period and after a correctly scored goal, teams take a face-off at the centre spot.
-When play is interrupted and the referee can´t decide what team must do a hit-in, a free-hit or a penalty shot.
-When the ball is damaged or is not correctly playable.
-When a serious injury occurs or an injured player directly affects play.
-When a penalty shot does not result in a goal.
Teams take face-offs at the nearest face-off dot, according to where the ball was at the interruption.
You also do a face-off...
-When the ball leaves the rink, the non-offending team gets a hit-in.
-Hit-ins must be taken from where the ball leaves the rink.
-All opponents must be at least 3 m from the ball.
-The ball must be hit to start play. The player taking the hit-in must not touch the ball again before another player touches it.
-A hit-in can go directly into goal.
-When a team commits an offence, the other team gets a free-hit.
-The free-hit must start where the offence was committed, but never closer to the goalkeeper´s area than 3.5 m.
4. Penalty shot:
-When an offence leading to a penalty shot is committed, the non-offending team is awarded a penalty shot.
-The penalty shot must be taken from the centre spot.
When is a penalty shot awarded?
-When the defending team committs an offence that prevents a goal situation
-When the defending team interrupts a goal situation.
