It refers to an era dominated by defensive-minded hockey where obstruction (holding, hooking, etc.) became more prevalent, leading to a significant drop in offensive output. It's commonly associated with the neutral-zone trap popularized by Jacques Lemaire and the New Jersey Devils en route to their first Stanley Cup in 1995, though a noticeable dip in offensive production wasn't recorded until 1997.

This all ended with the lockout.
