Was there a year in the late 1990s in the NHL that they changed faceoff locations in the offensive zone?

    The only significant change of the late 90s NHL was the Dead Puck Era.

    No, it wasn't a year. It was a season. Generally two months of the first year and six of the second.

    In 1990-91, The goal lines, blue lines, defensive zone face-off circles and markings all moved one foot out from the end boards, creating 11 feet of room behind the nets and shrinking the neutral zone from 60 to 58 feet.

    In 2005-06, the goal line moved from 13 feet (98-99 change) to 11 feet from end boards; blue lines moved to 75 feet from end boards, reducing neutral zone to 50 feet.
