By MSHL Staff, 08/09/21, 7:45PM EDT


There are a number of rules changes that will affect the MSHL.

Suggested Suspensions for Match Penalties

The Conference will issue a suspension following the guidelines suggested by USA Hockey. If the player/coach/team official accepts the suspension, no hearing is necessary. If a player/coach/team official disagrees with the length of the suspension, he/she can appeal. A hearing will be held according to USA Hockey By-Law 10. The hearing may decrease, sustain, or increase the suspension. The Executive Director will review all recommended suspensions for consistency and proper application of USA Hockey Rules and Regulations.
