USA Hockey Clip of the Week
Each week during the playing season, USA Hockey Officiating Development
posts a "Clip of the Week", video clips that illustrate a playing rule,
good Officating practice, or other game management issue. The clips use
real playing situations and, in some cases, the action is replayed in
slow motion to allow the viewer to see infractions in detail. The clips
are annotated with rule references and expert commentary to explain the
issues shown in the video segment.
The USA Hockey Playng Rules Clip of the Week can be found at:
You do not have to sign on to the USA Hockey web site to view the videos.
Clips from past seasons are also archived on the site, but you should be
aware that rule changes may have made some of the older videos obsolete.
