Flagrant / Violent Penalties will not be tolerated and officials have been instructed to issue, at a minimum, a Game Misconduct for any sort of dirty / cheap shot when observed.
While the game can be physical, there is no room for Violent, Flagrant penalties . . . The purpose of the league is to provide an opportunity for players to stay in shape, develop skills and most importantly have fun and enjoy the game of Ice Hockey as it was meant to be played.
All decisions during game play by the On or Off Ice Officials are final.
