Ask the Official: Checking from Behind and Boarding

By Dave Zednik, IHOA VP of Rules & Ethics

QUESTION: At the 10U Girls level, is checking in the back a 5 minute major with game ejection?

ANSWER: Checking from Behind and Boarding have “Minor plus Misconduct” or “Major plus Game Misconduct” penalty options at all levels of our game. The fact that the illegal contact occurred in a “Body Contact” game makes no difference to the penalty options.
