RULE 123 – CHECKING FROM BEHIND
DEFINITION: A player who delivers a check to a vulnerable player who is not aware of the impending hit or who is unable to protect or defend himself from such a hit. The point of contact is the back of the body.
i. A player who hits an opponent from behind into the boards, the goal frame, or in open ice in any manner will be assessed at least a minor and misconduct penalty.
ii. A player who recklessly endangers an opponent as a result of checking from behind will be assessed a major penalty and game-misconduct penalty.
iii. A player who injures an opponent as a result of checking from behind will be assessed a match penalty.
iv. If the skater being checked turns his back towards an opponent and puts himself in a vulnerable position immediately before a check to create a checking from behind situation, no penalty for checking from behind will be assessed (although other penalties might still be assessed).
