Shot Clock Information Sheet 2015-2016
Shot Clock Operator
The shot clock operator is a minor official, responsible for the operation of the shot clock. The
shot clock operator shall be positioned so that they can see the rink and follow the play, while
being protected from interference or distraction by spectators or team staff. The on-ice officials
must be able to communicate easily with the shot clock operator. At the end of the game, the
shot clock operator shall sign the Official Game Report.
Shot Clock
The rink shall have a separate clock, in addition to the game clock, that counts down time in
seconds. Two identical display units are required, one in each end zone. The display unit shall
be mounted behind and above the end boards, no higher than the top of the glass, between
the centre of the goal and the beginning of the arc of the corner to the goalkeeper's left. The
position of the display units relative to the goal must be identical in each end zone.

1. The shot clock shall be set to 30 seconds at the beginning of each period and after the
scoring of a goal
2. The shot clock shall count down only when the game clock counts down. The shot clock
shall be started when play is started and stopped when play is stopped. The shot clock
is not run when there is less time remaining in the period than there is on the shot clock
ie. 15 seconds on game clock, there is a shot on net, shot clock is reset and stopped at
30.
The shot clock shall be reset to 30 seconds when:
1. The team in possession of the ring takes a shot on goal.
2. Control of the ring changes from one team to the other team.
3. A delayed penalty is signaled. If additional delayed penalties are signaled before play is
stopped, the shot clock shall not be reset again.
4. A penalty causes the non-penalized team to commit a violation, and play is stopped as
a result.
5. A player on the team not in control of the ring commits a violation and play is stopped as
a result.
6. A player on the team not in possession of the ring is injured, and play is stopped as a
result.
When the shot clock reaches zero seconds, an audible signal will sound:
1. Play is stopped, as the team last in control of the ring has committed a violation.
2. The shot clock is reset to 30 seconds. 3.
3. The ring is awarded to the non-offending team, in the zone in which the ring was last
contacted or controlled.
If the shot clock’s audible signal sounds in error:
1. Play is stopped
2. The shot clock is reset to 30 seconds
3. The ring is awarded to the non-offending team, in the zone in which the ring was last
contacted or controlled.
If the shot clock is reset in error, play continues
TIPS FROM AN OFFICIAL
1. Introduce yourself and let the official know if there is an area of the ice that you cannot
see, we will help you out when the ring is in those areas for example in a corner or
along the boards
2. If you are not sure wait for the signal; a shot clock going off in error can be fixed a shot
clock reset in error cannot be fixed
3. When the whistle stops play it does not always mean there is a reset, it is a good habit
to get into to stop the shot clock instead of just hitting the reset button; a shot clock
going off in error can be fixed a shot clock reset in error cannot be fixed
4. You may not notice one official signalling for a reset so keep an eye out on both
officials.
5. Remember you are a minor official and need to watch the game as so, not as a
spectator.
6. Please ask the officials if you are unclear on any of the rules regarding shot clock or if
you are unsure what to do in a certain situation.
