The puck is not bounce resistant, but bouncing is controlled because they freeze them prior to-and during the games.

A warm (or room temperature) puck will bounce as it is rubber, however, once frozen, rubber loses its tendency to bounce.

According to Rule 24 concerning pucks in the NHL rulebook: "The home Team shall be responsible for providing an adequate supply of official pucks which shall be kept in a frozen condition. This supply of pucks shall be kept at the penalty bench under the control of one of the regular Off-Ice Officials or a special attendant."

On the ice, a hockey puck is pushing against much less surface friction, so it will slide with relative ease. On the street, a puck is forced to push against the pavement which it cannot do very well causing it to either stop or bounce across the surface.

Well to be honest, I was thinking of doing this for a science fair project and tested that, When the puck is cool it go's allot farther. A warmer Puck will tend to bounce because when its heated the coils inside unravel which makes it bounce. That's why, before a game they freeze the puck.
