Rules in Hockey:


Recommended Posts

I was watching some of the ND State Hockey tournament yesterday, when one of the players (for Central, if I recall) played the puck with a high stick. We started wondering why it is still a rule that a puck can't be played with a high stick. If I understand correctly, the rule was put in place when helmets were not the norm and sticks weren't curved like today. Why stop play then, if the puck is hit up high? Is it just to discourage carrying the stick high? In today's hockey, I can't see any reason this should still be on the books...

I wanted to see what other people thought, and since this forum provides me with a wealth of hockey knowledge, I thought I'd see what you all thought. Anybody ever questioned why this rule is in place before? Any good reason for it to be a rule?
