Rule Changes adopted by USA Hockey beginning in the 2017-18 season

AHAI and IHOA representatives just returned from the USA Hockey Annual Meeting in Colorado this past weekend. This year was a rule change year at USA Hockey so I am writing this note to let you know about the rule changes adopted by the USA Hockey Board of Directors.

As a backdrop to all of these changes, you must remember that USA Hockey, AHAI and IHOA are committed to providing a safe and fair environment for all participants. There are quite a number of changes applicable to playing rules and equipment so let’s get started.

The following rules will be applicable starting with the 2017-2018 playing season and will continue for the next four (4) years until the next time rule changes are permitted. I will highlight the major changes to the playing rules in this article and will issue a separate article for rules which were amended as a result of “language clarification”.  A summary of the changes to the playing rules is HERE
