Rule References for Game Reports
When writing game reports, please ensure you use the correct rule reference. There has been A LOT of game reports submitted lately where the rule reference used was from Section 4. This is incorrect, as Section 4 only explains what the penalties are and not what actually happened (slash, high stick, abuse of official, etc.). Please use rule references from Sections 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 of the Hockey Canada Rule/Case Book. If a Gross Misconduct is called for making a travesty of the game, it shall be referenced to Rule 4.7(b). SHA suspension guidelines are based on these rule references.
