DEFINITION: A player who uses any means to prevent a goaltender from playing his position.
i. A skater who, by means of his stick or his body, interferes with or impedes the progress of a goaltender who is in his goal crease, or who prevents the goaltender from playing his position, will be assessed a minor penalty.
ii. If an attacking skater in possession of the puck, skating forwards or backwards, makes contact with the goaltender in the goal crease, and the puck enters the goal net, the goal will not be allowed and the attacking skater will be assessed at least a minor penalty. This rule also applies to penalty shots and penalty-shot shootouts.
iii. An attacking skater who positions himself facing the opposing goaltender and engages in actions such as waving his arms or stick in front of the goaltender’s face for the purpose of distracting the goaltender as opposed to positioning himself to try to make a play, regardless whether the attacking skater is positioned inside or outside of the goal crease, will be assessed a minor penalty.
iv. An opponent who prevents or blocks a goaltender from returning to his goal crease or bumps him unduly while the goaltender plays the puck behind his goal net will be assessed a minor penalty.
v. An attacking skater may skate through the goal crease during game action so long as he doesn’t make contact with the goaltender. If he does makes contact, or if the goaltender makes contact while backing up in his goal crease, the attacking skater will be assessed a minor penalty.
