Rule 34.    Helmet
IIHF

1. During the pre-game warmup and the game itself (regulation time, overtime, and penalty-shot shootout), skaters must wear a certified helmet manufactured specifically for ice hockey with chin strap properly fastened.

2. If a skater fails to wear a helmet during the pre-game warmup in an IIHF competition, the standby referee will report the rules violation to the proper authorities. In national competitions, the procedure must follow the national association rules.

3. Skaters must wear their helmet so that the lower edge of the brim is not more than one finger-width above the eyebrows. Additionally, there should be only enough room between the chin strap and the chin to insert one finger.

4. Should the helmet of a skater come off during game action, he must go directly to the players bench. He is not allowed to touch the puck or participate in game action, and he is not allowed to put it back on securely while on the ice even if he is not participating in game action.

5. A skater is not allowed to deliberately knock off the helmet of an opponent expressly to force him to the bench or to eliminate him from game action.

6. Skaters helmets cannot have any design or writing on them except to provide a number corresponding to their jersey number or for officially-licensed advertising.

7. Skaters must wear their helmets while sitting on the players bench or in the penalty box except when the helmet is being cleaned or repaired.


Game situation 1: If the chin strap of a skaters helmet becomes unfastened during play, but the helmet stays on his head, he can continue to participate in game action until the next stoppage of play or until he leaves the ice.
