Hockey Canada has updated Tripping Rule 7.4 in the rule book for the 2016-17 season.


Rule 7.4(b), which pertains to slew footing, contains new language and penalties for this infraction. Rule 7.4(b) now reads:


A player who slew foots an opponent shall be assessed a double minor penalty plus a game misconduct if he is standing still while committing the foul. Should the player be moving (skating) or if an injury results from the infraction, the player shall be assessed a match penalty. A match penalty shall be assessed to any player who attempts to injure or deliberately injures an opponent with a slew foot.

On April 18, 2016 at the North Zone Referees' Committee's Annual General Meeting, long serving member Stuart McDonald was recognized.

Hello all,

As the season starts to wind down it is easy to get lazy and not put a great deal of effort into things like game reports. These are critical documents and a part of the job we are paid to do.

The North Zone would like to thank the Central Zone, South Zone, Peace Zone, North Central Zone and North East Zone this season for all the opportunities that were created for our officials this season. A lot of time and effort was put into making these assignments happen in which it has been appreciated by all!
