USA hockey CAHA new rules? 2 and 10's
So far in three games we've seen some new rules applied up here and the ref's haven't been really clear about how or why they are calling it the way they are. Basically there's a new combo of a 2 miinute minor with an automatic 10 minute misconduct. The first game it was called was for "head contact." The second game there was a "checking from behind" call. I talked to the ref after the second game and he informed me that CAHA is piloting this and it will be standard by 2014. I haven't been able to find anything online about it though and the ref didn't have a really clear position on if all calls were now 2 +10 or if there were minors allowed too. He said boarding, charging, bodychecks were also subject to the new application. Anyone else know of whats going on or is this just randomly being applied up here?
