Submitted By SLMH on Saturday, September 3, 2011
Hockey Canada recently approved measures to promote zero tolerance for all head contact/checks in minor and female hockey.

ACCIDENTAL HITS
A minor penalty will now be assessed for all accidental hits to the head.

INTENTIONAL HEAD CONTACT
A double minor penalty -or- a major and game misconduct
(discretion of the referee based on the violence of impact)

A major penalty and a game misconduct, or match penalty, shall be assessed to any player who injures an opponent under this rule.
