How ever you feel most comfortable icing it. I bought a big pad that can go in the in the microwave or freezer. I keep it in the freezer.

All the goalies I play with swear by Ice and never use heat unless the damage is going to keep them off the crease for more than one or two games. So far so good.

As for frostbite from icing you would have to be completely stupid to leave that much ice on your leg for the time it would take to actual cause frostbite or have ice in direct contact with your skin for that long. Heck the pain from frostbite should be enough to make you move the ice, and body heat will melt the ice or heat up the pad to the point that no frostbite should occur.

I did google "frostbite from icing" and it appears that their are a few folks that don't take pain as a warning.
