USA Hockey Approves Playing Rule Changes for 2021-25

The 2021-25 USA Hockey Playing Rule change process was completed on June 12, 2021 as the USA Hockey Board of Directors approved nearly 90 rule changes and clarifications at its Annual Congress. The 2021-25 USA Hockey Playing Rules will take effect starting September 1, 2021.

The majority of the changes in this four-year cycle were designed to incorporate concepts from USA Hockey’s Declaration of Safety, Fair Play, and Respect, which was introduced in 2019 to enhance the safety of the game for all participants. Many of the changes were also focused on clarifying the intent of the existing rules or updating their language.

The D2 Supervisor of Officials has composed a summary of the rule changes and educational points on how we can strengthen the Coach, Parent, Referee and Player relationship.  See following attachment.

Before her time at Bemidji State, she won gold with Team USA’s U18 team at the 2016 IIHF World Championships.  Full Article Here
