Don’t hit the numbers!

After watching the above video it is clear that Hockey Canada would like to eliminate Checking From Behind. Regardless of the player receiving the check turns or not a Check from Behind will be called when contact is made to the back. Players are advised to leave an “out”. Don’t take a “b-line” for the player.

As for the parents who yell at the referee for calling the penalty remember this, when your child is being taken off the ice with a neck/back injury on a spinal board and may lose his/her ability to walk. You may think twice before complaining about the Check From Behind penalty!
