Rule 79.    Offside situations
IIHF

1. If an attacking skater shoots or passes the puck which hits a teammate who preceded the puck into the attacking zone, game action will be stopped and an offside called. The ensuing faceoff will take place at the nearest faceoff spot to where the pass or shot originated which provides the offending team less territorial advantage.

2. If an attacking skater shoots the puck from outside the attacking zone, and it goes out of play in the attacking zone while a teammate preceded the puck into that zone, game action will be stopped and an offside called. The ensuing faceoff will take place at the nearest faceoff spot to where the pass or shot originated which provides the offending team less territorial advantage.

3. If a player from the defending team is in his defending zone and clears the zone with a shot or pass which hits an on-ice official outside the blue line and bounces back inside while a skater from the attacking team is still inside the blue line, the play will be considered a delayed offside.

4. If a skater makes a pass from outside his defending zone to a teammate with both skates inside the attacking zone, the play will be called as offside and the ensuing faceoff will take place in the neutral zone at the nearest faceoff spot to where the pass was made which provides the offending team less territorial advantage.

5. If a player makes a pass from inside his defending zone to a teammate already inside the attacking zone, the play will be called as offside and the ensuing faceoff will take place in the defending zone at the nearest faceoff spot to where the pass was made.

6. If an attacking skater is inside the attacking zone but he stickhandles or controls the puck outside that zone or zig-zags back and forth over that attacking zone blue line, the play is considered offside, and the ensuing faceoff will take place in the neutral zone at the nearest faceoff spot to where the puck was situated at the time of the whistle.


Offside situations


Game situation 1: If a skater has one skate off the ice and one skate in the attacking zone at the moment the puck completely crosses the blue line, it is offside.

Game situation 2: If a skater has both skates completely in the attacking zone at the moment the puck completely crosses the blue line, it is offside.

Game situation 3: If a skater in the neutral zone shoots the puck down the ice, but a teammate precedes the puck across the attacking blue line without playing the puck, the teammate is in a delayed offside position.

Game situation 4: A skater with both skates entirely in the attacking zone receives a pass from a teammate. If he stops the puck with his stick before the puck crosses the line and then pulls it over the blue line, it is offside.

Game situation 5: A6 has both skates completely in the attacking zone. A8, in the neutral zone, shoots or passes the puck but it hits B4, also in the neutral zone. If it deflects off the body or stick of B4 and crosses the blue line into the attacking zone, A6 is in a delayed offside position.

Game situation 6: The attacking team has possession of the puck in the attacking zone. The puck is partially on the blue line and partially in the neutral zone. If an attacking skater then moves the puck fully over the blue line and into the attacking zone, it is not offside.

Game situation 7: An attacking skater has one skate inside the attacking zone blue line and one skate outside. He takes a pass on his stick in the neutral zone and then brings the skate that was in the neutral zone over the blue line while the puck is still on his stick in the neutral zone. If he then pulls the puck over the blue line, it is offside.

Game situation 8: A defending player clears the puck out of his defending zone and the puck completely crosses the blue line. The puck then deflects off a skater from either team in the neutral zone and comes back into the defending zone. If an attacking skater is still in the attacking zone, it is offside.
