you need to check the latest updates.

A player may back into the offensive zone, have both skates or just one and the other off the ice and be on-side, If they are in control of the puck. Local Refs have told us that their interpretation of that means the puck is ON THE PLAYERS BLADE(in contact with) until the puck has crossed the blue line. Should the puck leave the players stick prior to completely entering the offensive zone, the play is whistled off-sides.

In other words, they may drag it in BUT the puck must have been on the stick prior to the skate/s crossing and must remain in contact with the stick until it has crossed the blue line.
