An offside is when a player from a team goes across the other team's blue line before the puck goes into the zone. The whistle will then be blown and faceoff will be outside of the zone. The team with the offside player must touch the puck for the whistle to be blown. If the offside player comes back out of the zone before the puck, the play will be called off.
