RULE 24 PENALTY SHOT 24.1. PENALTY SHOT A “Penalty Shot” is designed to restore a scoring opportunity which was lost as a result of a foul being committed by the offending Team, based on the parameters set out in these rules. 24.2. PROCEDURE The Referee shall announce the reason for the assessed “Penalty Shot” and shall have the Skater selected by the Team entitled to take the “Penalty Shot” announced over the Public Address System. The Referee shall then place the puck on the Center Face-off Spot and the Player taking the “Penalty Shot” will, on the instruction of the Referee, by blowing their whistle, play the puck from there and shall attempt to score on the Goalkeeper. The puck must be kept in motion towards the opponent’s Goal Line and once it is shot, the play shall be considered complete. No goal can be scored on a rebound of any kind (an exception being the puck off the Goal Post or crossbar, then the Goalkeeper and then directly into the goal), and any time the puck crosses the Goal Line or comes to a complete stop, the “Penalty Shot” shall be considered complete. The “lacrosse-like move” whereby the puck is picked up on the blade of the stick and “whipped” into the net shall be permitted provided the puck is not raised above the height of the shoulders at any time and when released, is not carried higher than the crossbar. ➔ Rule 80.1 – High-sticking the Puck. The “spin-o-rama type move” where the Player completes a 360° turn as they approach the goal, shall not be permitted. Should a Player perform such a move during the “Penalty Shot”, the shot shall be stopped by the Referee and no goal will be the result. Only a Player designated as a Goalkeeper or alternate Goalkeeper may defend against a “Penalty Shot”. The Goalkeeper must remain in their crease until the Player taking a “Penalty Shot” has touched the puck. If at the time a “Penalty Shot” is awarded, the Goalkeeper of the penalized Team has been removed from the ice to substitute another Player, the Goalkeeper shall be permitted to return to the ice before the “Penalty Shot” is taken. The Team against whom the “Penalty Shot” has been assessed may replace their Goalkeeper to defend against the shot, however, the substitute goalkeeper is required to remain in the game until the next stoppage of play. While the “Penalty Shot” is being taken, Players of both sides shall withdraw to the sides of the Rink and in front of their own Player’s Bench. 24.3. DESIGNATED PLAYER In all cases where a “Penalty Shot” has been awarded, the “Penalty Shot” shall be taken by a Skater selected by the Coach or Captain of the non-offending Team from any non-penalized Skater of their Team. Such selection shall be reported to the Referee and cannot be changed. 04 SECTION · TYPES OF PENALTIES
