Timekeeping Information

Timekeepers are a crucial part of every hockey game. An experienced time keeper can allow the player to dictate the pace of the game, while inexperienced timekeepers can inadvertently slow down momentum and cause frictions on the ice. It is important to note that timekeepers are considered Off-ice Officials by the Hockey Canada Rule Book and are to be treated with the same respect as On-Ice Officials during the game.
