Penalties:

Major Penalties:

A team that has had a five-minute major assessed to a player but the player cannot serve the penalty due to ejection has the choice to not put a substitute player in the box until later in the five-minute penalty. It will be up to the team to judge when to put a player in the box and it can only be done during a stoppage in play. If the team has not put a player in the box and the penalty has run out then the team will continue to play short for that penalty until the next stoppage in play.

1.      For Major penalties, a player will receive a five-minute penalty that must be served.

2.      If a penalty is deemed intentional by referee, a five-minute penalty and a game misconduct.

Misconducts:

1.      Ten minutes to be served by player

2.      The referee, at his discretion, may assess a two-minute minor penalty plus a ten-minute misconduct for an infraction deemed to be more serious than a minor penalty that does not warrant a five-minute major penalty.  In this case, the ten-minute misconduct penalty would not result in a suspension if it occurs in the last ten minutes of a game.

High Sticking:

Suspensions:

1.     Suspensions carry over from league to playoffs and on through the following year.

4.     If a penalty is called incorrectly as to the league rules, a review will be available after the game by the league and a suspension could follow.

Game Ejection:

1.    At the discretion of the referee, a player who is deemed to be unruly or who is being aggressive towards other players, may be assessed a game ejection in the last ten minutes of the game instead of a misconduct penalty.  Should the player continue with or escalate this behavior, the referee at his discretion may still assess a misconduct penalty for which one game suspension would apply.
