in a hockey fight when one player rubs the smelly ass plah of his hockey glove up and down the other players face, like he was washing his face, its one of the most annoying and aggrivatting things, not to mention degrading, a badass move.

ice hockey variation a facewash in an ice hockey game is a provocative move or an attempt at intimidation that may precede a fight where the aggressor performs the facewash wearing his or her hockey glove allowing the sweat-soaked (and often ubernasty smelling) leather palm of the glove to do the washing and make the point.
When Pronger facewashed the rookie in the corner, the kid retaliated with a punch and they both went to the box.
