Finishing the Check: New Stance on Body Contact 

          November 2019

Have you been watching hockey this year and noticed that you see less body checks? Whether it is NHL, Pro, College, Junior, or Youth, the answer is yes.  There has been a significant drop at all levels of play. For the fan that grew up with the physicality of 70s and 80s hockey, or the clutching and grabbing of the 90s, you saw a big shift when the new standard of holding, hooking, and stick work made the game faster. 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.
