How to be Successfull in the New Game

Understanding the New Standards of play and Rule Emphasis

  1. KEEP YOUR FEET MOVING
    Restraining a fore-checker, back-checker or puck carrier with your stick of free hand is no longer permitted. To avoid using your stick or free hand to impede a players progress, keep your feet moving at all times. This will enable you to gain control of the puck.
  2. KEEP YOUR STICK ON THE ICE
    Your stick cannot be used to hook, hold or impede an opponent. Stick contact involving any degree of force to the glove, arm, shoulder, back or unprotected area of an opponent will be penealized. To keep yourself from using your stick to slow an opponent's progress, keep your stick on the ice at all times
  3. APPROACH THE PUCK/PLAYER AT AN ANGLE
    Avoid dangerouse contact at all times. All forceful, intentional or dangerous contact from behind or to the head will be penealized. The responsibility is on the checker to control the angle and speed of approach. Remember, when you see the STOP patch on the jersey, STOP!
  4. KEEP YOUR HANDS DOWN
    Your free arm/hand cannot be used to grab, hold or impede an opponent. Players must use body positioning to move a player. To avoid using your hand or arms to hold an opponent, keep them on your stick
  5. DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS
    In the new game, practicing your skills is more important than ever. Take time to practice your stick handling and skating to excel in the new game. The faster your feet and hands are, the more successful you will be, and the more you will enjoy the game.
