    Off sides only occur whenever a player touches the puck while another player is over the blue line before the puck. So linesmen can give a warning when an offside is about to occur. For example, there is a player over the blue line without the puck. Another player is skating towards the blue line. The player with the puck see's the other player open for a pass. The linesman will most likely then predict whether or not a pass is about to happen. If he thinks the pass will happen, he will raise his hand and shout "Off Side". The player over the blue line will then notice he is offside and skate back to the blue line and then the other player will go over the blue line with the puck as normal. I am not sure if this is in the NHL, however I do now it is used in minor leagues to help players learn offside.

    When a player is racing to their attacking zone (enemy team's defending zone) to prevent icing from being called, does the person that hit the puck have to race or can it be anyone on the offending team? I know that anyone on defense can cause other team icing by beating them there besides the goalie.

    A few points not covered in this video:
    1) If a team is short-handed because they are killing a penalty, there is NO ICING, so they can shoot the puck down the ice all they want without it stopping play.
    2) ANYONE who shoots the puck from behind the center line to the opposing team's goalie red line has iced the puck, including goalies. (Someone below wrongly said goalies can't ice)
    3) If a defenseman can get to the puck but chooses not to in order to cause icing, the linesman will usually waive icing and play continues.
    4) Regarding OFFSIDES: This video should have demonstrated the importance of "clearing the puck": when the defensive team gets the puck out beyond the blue line and into neutral ice, this forces the ENTIRE OFFENSIVE TEAM to return to neutral ice before going on offense again. This is HUGE, and not explained at all in the video.
    5) To prevent offsides, only ONE of an offensive player's skates player must be behind the blue line, and the rest of the player may be in the offensive zone.
    6) Another huge issue not addressed: under NHL rules adopted in 2006, the team guilty of icing is NOT ALLOWED to switch players, meaning a tired team that ices the puck to stop a long and tiring attack must stay out on the ice, while the other team can bring in fresh players.In extreme cases, coaches will often call a time out to let their tired players rest before facing off.
    Not addressing any of these issues will surely cause confusion if a newbie watches a real hockey game and doesn't know about the exceptions.
