RULE 159 – SLASHING
DEFINITION: A player who swings his stick, with one hand or two, at any part of an opponent’s body or equipment. Contact to the opponent is not necessary for the penalty to be assessed.
i. Tapping the stick of the puck carrier is not considered slashing if it is limited to hitting the stick for the sole purpose of trying to make the opponent lose possession of the puck. Forceful contact, especially if it results in breaking either the opponent’s stick or the player’s own stick, is considered slashing.
ii. A player who slashes an opponent will be assessed at least a minor penalty.
iii. A player who injures or recklessly endangers an opponent by slashing will be assessed a major penalty and game-misconduct penalty or a match penalty.
iv. A player who swings his stick at another player during a confrontation will be assessed a major penalty and game-misconduct penalty or match penalty.
v. A player who swings wildly at the puck, on ice or in the air, with the object of intimidating an opponent will be assessed at least a minor penalty.
vi. A player who lifts his stick between an opponent’s legs for the purpose of making contact with the groin will be assessed either a major penalty and game-misconduct penalty or a match penalty.
