Banging on the Boards; July 2019

The correct procedure to apply this interpretation is to first warn the offending team once after the first violation. Any further violation of this policy by the same team should be penalized by assessing a bench minor to the team under Rule 601(b)1 & 5. This bench minor is to be served by a player on the ice at the time of the infraction. Once this bench minor has been served, any further violations by the same team shall be penalized by assessing a bench minor penalty. If a bench minor penalty for a violation of this policy is being served and before that bench minor expires another violation by the same team occurs that teams head coach shall be assessed a game misconduct under Rule601(e)1.
