RULE 141 – FIGHTING
DEFINITION: A player who punches an opponent during game action, after a whistle, or any time during the regular course of a game during a prolonged player confrontation.
i. A player who starts a fight will be assessed a match penalty.
ii. A player who in any way retaliates to being punched will be assessed at least a minor penalty.
iii. A player who removes his glove(s) or helmet with the intention of engaging in a confrontation with an opponent will be assessed a misconduct penalty in addition to any other penalties.
iv. If there is a clear instigator and aggressor in a fight, that player will be assessed a minor penalty as the aggressor in addition to any other penalties he may incur.
v. If there is no clear instigator or aggressor in a fight, both players can be assessed match penalties.
vi. A player who is on the ice and is the first to intervene in a fight already in progress (third man in) between two opposing players will be assessed, in additional to any other penalties incurred during the incident, a game-misconduct penalty. The degree of intervention is the criterion for interpretation of enforcement.
vii. A player who tries to fight or continues to fight after he has been ordered by the referee to stop, or who resists a linesman who is trying to circumvent the continuation of a fight, will be assessed a double minor penalty or a major penalty and automatic game- misconduct penalty or a match penalty.
viii. If a fight involves one player on the ice with another player off it, both players will be assessed a misconduct penalty or a game-misconduct penalty or a match penalty.
ix. A team official who is involved in a fight, on ice or off, will be assessed either a game-misconduct penalty or a match penalty.
x. The first player from either team to leave the players’ bench or penalty box during a player confrontation on ice will be assessed a double-minor penalty and an automatic game-misconduct penalty. Subsequent players who leave the players’ bench during a player confrontation will be assessed a misconduct penalty. Subsequent skaters who leave the penalty box during a player confrontation will be assessed a minor and game-misconduct penalties. These penalties will be served at the expiration of all previous penalties. The act alone of leaving either the players’ bench or penalty box constitutes a violation of these rules, even if the players do not engage in fighting once they are on the ice.
xi. Player substitutions (i. e., line changes) made prior to a player confrontation are allowed, but any player subsequently becoming involved in a player confrontation will be penalized as if he left players’ bench or penalty box to participate in that confrontation.
xii. If players of both teams leave their respective benches at the same time, or if players from one team leave their players’ bench after seeing players from the other team do so, the first identifiable player of each team will be penalized under this rule.
xiii. A maximum of five misconduct and/or game-misconduct penalties per team can be assessed under this rule.
xiv. A player cannot be assessed both a match penalty and a game- misconduct penalty for continuing a fight.
