This year USA Hockey has placed a large emphasis on player safety as they work to change the culture of body checking.  In games this season, referees actively educate players to eliminate dangerous hits - sometimes with a warning and sometimes with a penalty.  Because of this, players at the U14 and above levels have likely seen an increase in the number of penalties.  Share these videos with your players for a quick review of a legal hit vs. a penalty.
