In continuing efforts to minimize the risk of injury in the sport, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Ice Hockey Rules Committee approved changes that will strengthen the language for dangerous hits as well as give game officials discretion for issuing a game disqualification when a player illegally hits an- other player from behind. Rule 6-7-2 states, "No player shall push, charge, cross-check or body-check an opponent from behind into the boards or goal frame," and a violation would I result in a roajor and misconduct penalty or if fin- | rant game dlsgLuallficatlon. checking-from-behind change was one The of four major rules revisions approved by the committee at its April 22-23 meeting in Indianapolis. The changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors. "Checking from behind is the most dangerous act in the sport," said Dan Schuster, NFHS assistant di- rector of coach education and staff liaison to the Ice Hockey Rules Committee. "With all of its rules changes, the goal of the committee is to minimize the risk of injury." In another risk-minimization change, Rule 6-41-3 now states, "No player shall deliver a check to an un- suspecting and vulnerable player." This addition was implemented to eliminate blind-side hits from the sport as well as to stress legal body-checking. "This helps protect the defenseless player," Schus- ter said. "The committee is striving to take these dan- gerous and unnecessary hits out of the game." The final roles change dealing with risk minimiza- tion is Rule 3-3-5. The rule now includes a goal- keeper's glove as being a piece of equipment that, if it becomes displaced, requires play to be immedi- ately stopped. In the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play, the committee elected to institute Rule 6-42-1 and 2, which prohibits the embellishment of hbt iii"fin tempt to . aw a ?enai 't '0 gl h'fi br deceitful actions :or to attempt to worseh J "" an already called penalty. The infraction for both is a minor penalty call. "Some kids are putting themselves in position where it looks like they get checked from behind, when in fact, they are merely attempting to draw a ma- jor penalty," Schuster said. "The commfttee wants to eliminate these acts from the game." According to the NFHS High School Athletics Participation Survey, ice hockey is the 15th-most pop- ular boys sport at the high school level with 35,732 participants in 1,612 schools. An additional 8,833 girls participated in the sport at 600 schools. AGRICULTURAL DRAIN TILING Surface and subsurface water problems?
