Old school hockey fans did not like the change, but the game of hockey has evolved into a beautiful and fast game that requires immense skill, and no longer is beneficial to players that had size.
This has prompted many leading officials in the game to create a point of emphasis to eliminate unnecessary body contact and hitting to limit injury. The game of hockey is not designed to intimidate or hurt its participants and opponents, but rather use skill to defeat them.
