ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga - 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 ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga League Management and advance notice is given to the visiting team.
