Goal Line

The goal lines in hockey are red lines that run directly through the back of the goalie crease and the front of the goal cage.

The goal lines also directly form the goalie trapezoids.

The goal line is an important line on a hockey rink. It is used by the referee when calling an icing infraction.

In hockey, a team should keep the puck out of their defensive zone and as far away from the goal line as possible.

The goal lines are used by referees and officials to determine if a goal is scored. For a goal to count in hockey, the puck must pass through the plane of the goal line.

In hockey, the puck must pass the entire goal line to count. If the puck remains on the goal line, but doesn't go through it, then a goal will not count.
