Thursday, May 10, 2012 If the player sprinted forward of the Engagement Zone, she must drop back to be considered in play.

Today’s rule is subrule of, which requires out of play skaters to reenter the engagement zone the opposite way she left. It was asked yesterday how that can be, since a skater who leaves from the front of the engagement zone must return to the engagement zone. This rule makes it a little more clear. If a player goes out of play by sprinting (which would be forward ahead of the engagement zone) then the opposite of sprinting is slowing down and possibly stopping, which is how she must reenter the engagement zone.
