Standard of Play

At the 2006 Hockey Canada AGM, a motion on the Rules Emphasis and Standard of Play was approved, including a focus on checking from behind, head checking, preventing the use of the stick to impede a player's progress and reduce stick fouls. Through the new standard of the rules enforcement, our game will continue to allow the opportunity for improved skill development and provide positive hockey experiences.
