Two new rules were approved by the Board for immediate implementation. One of them gives an automatic one game suspension to any player that is ejected from a game.
The second new rule is one that will make the play faster around the nets. The new rule assigns a delay penalty to a goalie who is caught freezing the ball “through” the net. This is a behavior that has proliferated over the years in the Burlington league but that has not been as common in the Barre-Montpelier league. This new rule will thus be more of an adaptation for the Burlington League goalies.
The game rules book has been updated to reflect these changes.
