National League: rules adjustment to NHL « sauce » – rts.ch


The National and the Swiss League adopt the rule changes made by the IIHF with immediate effect. Rules inspired by the NHL.

Fouls can now be penalized with a five-minute penalty without automatic exclusion for the remainder of the match. The offside rule will also be adjusted. If an attacker’s skate is in the air above the blue line, it is no longer considered offside.

In addition, the use of the « coach challenge » will be extended. It can now also be used to control a hand pass, a high stick or when the puck leaves the playing area. The first challenge lost will result in a 2 minute penalty. The following ones will cost a 2 + 2 penalty each time.
