USA Hockey has updated the "Official USA Hockey Ice Markings" for the upcoming 2013-14 season. Rink owners and operators can take comfort in the fact that these markings will remain in place through the 2016/2017 season as the USA Hockey Rules Committee has changed the rule change years. Previously rule change proposals were voted in every every 2 years. The new change only allows rule changes every 4 years. The changes are effective September 1, 2013.
