That's how we do it here, even in beer leagues.
And then if you do want to save time and be lazy, the 3 puck system involves the puck you play with obviously, and each official carries a puck in their pocket. When there's an icing the back guy just takes the faceoff and then the front guy who blew the icing just picks up the puck and only has to skate back to the blue line and by that time the players are already nearly set for the faceoff.
If one ref ends up with 2 pucks in his pocket he takes the next offside faceoff or whatever with his extra puck and the other guy picks up the playing puck
It saves time and you don't look unprofessional, so it's a win win. We often do it with running clock tournaments.
That's why you have to read everything I post
Everything I post is important and informative
IF you're going to be that negative and ignore it you're mijssing out on knowledge. I drop knowledge proper good
