No ice

Pretty simple but I'm really not sure....when the ref/linesman calls "no ice" - is that meaning simply that they're not going to call for icing? Or that it wasn't icing? And so that means the game continues?

Whenever I'm chasing one of the Ds into their defensive zone, sometimes I hear that called, and then I falter because I don't know whether to continue chasing, or whether if I do I'll look like an idiot for not stopping when play seems to have stopped.

"No Ice" means no icing. So keep chasing.

Keep truckin'.

No Ice means they waved it off when there may have been a chance it would have been called (Say the ref saw a deflection or thinks the defender could have touched it).

Keep an eye on your goalie. Usually, the goalie will raise his glove hand if it's an ice, or keep it down if it's waved off.
If yours doesn't, ask them to let you guys know. It'll make your life much easier.

What you stated is correct, the icing has been called off, the reason doesn't matter, and play continues. A good ref will call off an icing by the time the puck reaches the top of the defending team's faceoff circle so you have time to react.

With the poster being in his offensive roll, watching his own goalie would be very odd.

The goalie can be a clue but its not something you should rely on. I have seen defensive players get creamed because the goalie had indicated icing when in fact it wasnt. As warrior posted, play till the whistle. Do that and you will never look foolish. There are many times an icing will be waved off at the last second before a puck crosses the line due to a defender who stops skating. If your going hard you might get a good chance out of it.

"Ice" in some hockey terms is pretty much just a slang for "Icing".

Yeah...I re-read after I posted that he was on the offensive. So...skate hard until you hear the whistle. On the defensive...watch your goalie.
