Hockey/Rules question

Well actually, this rule is found within the Regular rulebook and the Case Study Book of the rules for USA Hockey.  This book is sometimes sold separate.  However, you can find the Casebook on-line within a PDF file from USA Hockey that combines both the Rule book and the Case study book.

However, the rule reads like this:


G.) A minor penalty for delay of game shall be assessed to a

goalkeeper who drops the puck into his pads or onto the goal

net or deliberately piles up snow or obstacles near the goal

that, in the opinion of the Referee, could prevent the scoring

of a goal.

I have been playing amateur hockey for 48 years... from Youth hockey up to Jr. "B", and now still play in adult leagues. I have coached youth hockey for 10+ years and have been an "active student" of all aspects of learning, playing and coaching hockey for past 8 years. I offer not only some X`s & O`s about hockey but also some experience in practical, philosophical, spiritual and motivational aspects of playing and learning the game. My son is now 26 - just done with his carreer through College. He went through all the hurdles to get to Juniors and played there for 3 years, then College for 4. I am happy to share our experience during that journey.


Now in my 49th year involved with this awesome ever evolving sport! I am USA Hockey Certified as Intermediate Level Coach. I have a BA degree in Psychology with minor in business (Brock University), as well as a LLB (law degree) from Ottawa University. I have owned and operated my family business for 30+ years now. I have co-parented 3 great kids!
