Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the determining factor for offside at the blue line?

    • A.

      Position of the puck

    • B.

      Position of the players' skates

    • C.

      Position of the players' stick

    • D.

      Position of the players' body

    Correct Answer
    B. Position of the players' skates
    Explanation
    The position of the player’s skates is always the primary factor for determining an offside call. To avoid an offside, a player without the puck must maintain contact with his/her skate (either blade or boot) until the puck is completely across the blue line.

    The puck is shot by a player standing behind the center red line. The puck goes down through the goal crease and over the goal line. Does the referee:

      Wash out the icing.

    • B.

      Call icing.

    Correct Answer
    B. Call icing.
    Explanation

    With the puck along the boards, a player who is about to be checked turns at the last moment, creating contact from behind. Should a checking from behind penalty be assessed?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Contact from behind, regardless of how a player turns before being hit, is a penalty.

  • 4. 

    How many conditions must be met before a referee can call a penalty shot?

    • A.

      Two

    • B.

    • C.

      Four

    • D.

      Five

    Correct Answer
    D. Five
    Explanation
    To justify a penalty shot: 1. The attacking player must have control of the puck. 2. The puck must be over the centre red line. 3. The attacking player must have no defending player to pass, other than the goaltender. 4. The attacking player must be fouled from behind. 5. The attacking player must be denied a reasonable scoring opportunity.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The referee has signaled a delayed minor penalty for checking from behind on a player of Team A. Team B scores before the play is stopped. The referee would:

    • A.

      Wash out the minor penalty but assess the game misconduct penalty.

    • B.

      Wash out both penalties to Team A, as Team B scored.

    • C.

      Assess minor penalty and a game misconduct for checking from behind.

    • D.

      Wash out the goal and assess both the minor and game misconduct.

    Correct Answer
    A. Wash out the minor penalty but assess the game misconduct penalty.

    A goal scored would wipe out the delayed minor penalty, but the game misconduct would still be called.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Team A is serving a minor penalty. The referee signals a delayed penalty to Team A. Team B scores a goal prior to the stoppage of play. Which penalty automatically expires once a goal has been scored?

    • A.

      The minor penalty on delay.

    • B.

      The minor penalty being served.

    • C.

      No penalty expires.

    Correct Answer
    B. The minor penalty being served.
    Explanation
    With a delayed penalty pending, the penalty already being served is the one to expire. The delayed penalty would still be assessed.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    During a stoppage in play to attend to an injured player, the goaltender from Team A notices a strap on his pads has become damaged. He skates to his own bench to have it repaired. After the injured player is off the ice, the referee notices the goaltender at the bench having his equipment repaired, after which he returns to his net before the resumption of play. The official must:

    • A.

      Warn the goalie to ask for permission before attending to his own bench.

    • B.

      Give the bench 30 seconds to repair the equipment or be assessed a minor penalty for delay of game.

    • C.

      Assess a minor penalty for delay of game against the goaltender.

    Correct Answer
    C. Assess a minor penalty for delay of game against the goaltender.
    Explanation
    A goaltender is not allowed to visit his/her bench even during a stoppage in play. If a goaltender has to visit the bench to recover from an injury or for repairs, he/she must be replaced by a substitute. If no substitute is dressed, a minor penalty must be assessed, or the team may start play with six skaters.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A goaltender has her stick knocked from her hand into the corner. One of her teammates sees this, skates into the corner, and,  using her stick, shoots the stick back to the goaltender as the play leaves her end of the rink. The referee would:

    • A.

      Assess a minor penalty for interference to the player that shot the stick to the goaltender.

    • B.

      Assess a penalty to the goaltender for illegally receiving a stick.

    • C.

      Assess no penalty.

    Correct Answer
    C. Assess no penalty.
    Explanation
    It is not illegal for one player to shoot a stick to another player, as long as the stick does not interfere with the play and is not directed at an opposing player.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Team A is serving a minor penalty. During the play, a player from Team B is tripped on a clear breakaway. The referee assesses a penalty shot. The player from Team B scores. What happens to the player in the penalty box?

    • A.

      He stays in the box to serve out the remainder of his penalty.

    • B.

      His penalty is washed out as a result of the successful penalty shot.

    Correct Answer
    A. He stays in the box to serve out the remainder of his penalty.
    Explanation
    A successful penalty shot does not cancel a penalty already being served.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    At the 4:00 mark of a period, two players (one from each team) take coincidental minor penalties. Substitutions are made and both teams play at full strength. Thirty seconds later, a second player from Team B is penalized. Another 30 seconds after that, Team A scores. The officials must:

    • A.

      Cancel the first penalty against Team B and release the player who has served the longest time in the penalty box.

    • B.

      Cancel the second penalty against Team B because that player caused his team to be shorthanded.

    • C.

      Cancel neither penalty against Team B because the first penalties were deemed to be "coincidental."

    Correct Answer
    B. Cancel the second penalty against Team B because that player caused his team to be shorthanded.
    Explanation
    As the first two penalties did not cause either team to be shorthanded, the penalty against the second player penalized from Team B would be canceled.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Following a heated game, the teams return to their dressing rooms, where a coach from Team A and another coach from Team B get into a verbal confrontation. The referees, who have just arrived at the dressing rooms, witness the incident. As a result, the officials can:

    • A.

      Break up the altercation but assess no penalties, as the incident took place after the game and away from the ice.

    • B.

      If warranted, assess penalties and add them to the game sheet.

    Correct Answer
    B. If warranted, assess penalties and add them to the game sheet.
    Explanation
    Referees are allowed to assess penalties at any time before, during and after completion of the game. The details of a post-game penalty will be recorded on the game sheet in detail. The referee can assess a minor, major, match or misconduct penalty. Any player or team official assessed a gross misconduct in the last 10 minutes of regular time, any time in overtime or after conclusion of the game shall be suspended for a minimum of one game or seven days.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Team A has pulled their goaltender in a bid to tie a game. With an extra skater on the ice, a player Team B gets full control of the puck and starts skating towards the open net on a clear breakaway with all of the players from Team B behind him. Before he and the puck cross the blue line, a water bottle from Team A’s bench is thrown on the ice in the direction of the player with the puck. The referee must:

    • A.

      Assess a minor penalty for interference to Team A.

    • B.

      Call a penalty shot and give Team A an opportunity to replace its goaltender.

    • C.

      Award Team B a goal, as the player was a clear break toward an empty net.

    Correct Answer
    C. Award Team B a goal, as the player was a clear break toward an empty net.
    Explanation
    A goal can be awarded to an attacking team if a stick or any object is thrown on the ice while a player in full possession and control of the puck is heading toward an open net.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A player from Team A skates to the boards to retrieve a puck. Once there, he gains control of the puck, and pivots with his back to the boards. After he pivots, a player from Team B arrives and checks him violently into the boards. He coasts into the check, does not make contact with the other player’s head, and does not leave his feet. The referee can:

    • A.

      Assess no penalty as the player with the puck took no steps to protect himself.

    • B.

      Assess no penalty because the player along the boards was facing the player who checked him.

    • C.

      Assess a penalty for boarding.

    Correct Answer
    C. Assess a penalty for boarding.
    Explanation
    According to the Hockey Canada rule book, the referee can call a boarding penalty any time a player "body checks, cross checks, elbows, charges or trips an opponent in such a manner that causes the opponent to be thrown violently into the boards. Taking too many steps to build up speed, or leaving your feet to make a hit along the boards, are aggravating factors that may require the assessment of a major or match penalty. They are not necessary for a minor boarding penalty to be assessed."

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A player from Team A is rushing the puck into the attacking zone when a player from Team B tries to cut her off. The Team B player dives and as she slides along the ice, and her shoulder makes contact with the skates of the Team A player, knocking her to the ice. In this instance, the referee would:

    • A.

      Call no penalty as a sliding player cannot be penalized for being unable to control his/her body while sliding across the ice.

    • B.

      Call no penalty as it was the sliding player's shoulder that made contact with the other player's skates.

    • C.

      Call a minor penalty for tripping.

    Correct Answer
    C. Call a minor penalty for tripping.
    Explanation
    Anytime a player uses "her stick, knee, hand, foot, arm or elbow in such a manner or slides along the ice directly in the path of the puck, causing the puck carrier to trip and lose control of the puck, a penalty shall be called." If the tripped player is injured as a result of the trip, a major penalty and game misconduct would be assessed.
