The fact that this is just HS hockey explains much. They tend to be the last to get with the latest. bottom line is to talk with your officiating body and go with their interpretations. If it is different than the most current, you can only wait until your league gets up to date.

go to USAHOCKEY.COM and download the casebook. Page 192 contains the info your looking for

"Rule 626 Off-Sides:
(a) Players of an attacking team may not precede the puck into
the Attacking Zone.
(Note) A player actually propelling and in possession and
control of the puck who shall cross the line ahead of the
puck shall not be considered “off-side.”
