Ask the Official: 2 Penalty Shots?

By Dave Zednik, IHOA Registrar

QUESTION: If during a scramble in the crease, a defensive player covers the puck two times in the same sequence, would this elicit two penalty shots?

ANSWER: This is not an easy question to answer without watching the infraction first-hand. There cannot be two Penalty Shots awarded. However, if the official determines that two “scoring opportunities” were taken away (two separate infractions) then the officials can award a penalty shot and a separate minor penalty.
