The USA Hockey Board of Directors adopted several playing rules changes at this year's Hockey Annual Congress held in June. These changes will be valid from the 2013-14 through the 2016-17 season.
Each year, USA Hockey publishes its Annual Guide, which details the organization's administrative structure, programs and philosophy, bylaws, rules and regulations and much more.
The Official Playing Rules provides consistency for all participants, to ensure a safe and positive playing environment while continuing to focus on skill development and enjoyment of the sport.
