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: https://www.usahockey.com/officialsvideos. 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.
