A slot is the area in the offensive zone between the two face-off circles. It can refer to two areas of the rink, the low slot, which is located directly in front of the goaltender, and the high slot, which is located in the middle of the ice above the face-off circles. While both types of slots have similar rules, they differ slightly in terms of placement and function. A slot in the offensive zone is the best place to score without deflection, but be aware that defenders will usually establish this area as no man’s land.

A slot can be used for a wide variety of purposes. One such use is in the context of language, where it can represent a specific word or phrase. For example, an entity value such as New York can have several synonyms, such as Big Apple and NYC. This is done with the Dialog Engine by checking the Allow Synonyms checkbox. Next to the slot type value, there is a field called Enter Synonym. You can also highlight a word or phrase and click X to remove it from the list.
