Types Of Penalties


Minor Penalty
A minor penalty against a player other than the goaltender results in that player being removed off the ice for two minutes or until the other team scores a goal. If the minor penalty is called against a goaltender, another player on the ice serves his time in the penalty box.

Double Minor Penalty
When a referee determines the infraction more severe than a minor penalty, but does not warrant a major penalty. An example of such an infraction is when it results in an injury or there is an attempt to injure. They are served as two concurrent minor penalties totaling 4 minutes. If high sticking is called and blood is drawn, it automatically becomes a double minor penalty.

Major Penalty
A major penalty is called against a player when the referee judges a greater degree of violence or deliberate severity was used. Kneeing and spearing are almost always major penalties. It results in five minutes in the penalty box.
