ICE Hockey League - Ice Surface

The freshly resurfaced ice sheet must be available 40 minutes prior to opening face-off for warm-up. The ice must be resurfaced before the game begins, during the intermissions (including Play-offs with endless OT).

At the conclusion of regular playing time, the ice surface will not be cleaned for OT or shootouts.

*The ice sheet, during each intermission, must be cleaned with the Zamboni off the ice, with at least 4 minutes of time before conclusion of intermission, to allow the ice to properly set.

Delays – No delay shall be permitted by reason of any ceremony, exhibition, demonstration, or presentation unless approved by the ICE Hockey League Management and advance notice is given to the visiting team.
