Rule 504 | Goal Judge

Rule 504 | Goal Judge

(a) When mandated by the local governing body, there shall be one “GOAL JUDGE” stationed out of play and behind each goal during the game. The area reserved for the Goal Judges shall be protected from spectators so there can be no interference with the performance of their duties.

(b) The duty of the Goal Judge is to determine whether the puck has completely crossed the goal line between the goal posts and under the crossbar. His decision is simply “goal” or “no goal” and he shall report his version when requested to do so by the Referee.
