To confuse things further, here is a slowed down video of the Gaborik goal.
Wavesinair was kind enough to look up the NHL definition of “control of the puck” to go along with the addendum to the offsides rule Bobby Scribe posted below.
SECTION 7 – RESTRAINING FOULS
57.3 Penalty Shot
“Control of the puck” means the act of propelling the puck with the
stick, hand or feet. If while it is being propelled, the puck is touched by
another player or his equipment, or hits the goal or goes free, the
player shall no longer be considered to be “in control of the puck”.
You be the judge
