An Icy Word is:

A word whose first two letters also begin the name of one of Santa's reindeer!

Like so:

DAMAGE = DASHER or DANCER,
RUNNER = RUDOLPH,
DOVER = DONNER,
CUT = CUPID,
PROJECT = PRANCER,
VIDEO = VIXEN,
BLAST = BLITZEN,
COVER = COMET

As for the title:

'Icy' is a very wintry word, perfect for describing the climate of Lapland, where we all know Santa and his reindeer live!
