For a “MINOR PENALTY,” any player, other than a goalkeeper, shall be ruled off the ice for the designated minor penalty time during which time no substitute shall be permitted.
For a “MAJOR PENALTY,” any player, except the goalkeeper, shall be ruled off the ice for five minutes, or the designated major penalty time, during which time no on-ice substitute shall be permitted.
A “MISCONDUCT” penalty involves the removal of a player, other than a goalkeeper, from the game for a period of 10 minutes, or the designated misconduct penalty time, with immediate substitution taking place on ice. A player whose misconduct penalty has expired shall remain on the penalty bench until the next stoppage of play.
- When a player receives a minor penalty plus a misconduct or game misconduct penalty at the same time, the penalized team shall immediately place an additional non-penalized player, other than a goalkeeper, on the penalty bench and such player may not be changed.
- No other replacement for the penalized player shall be permitted to enter the game except from the penalty bench upon expiration of the penalty.
