Hockey Canada rule

A Major penalty and a Game Misconduct penalty shall be assessed any player who charges a goaltender while the goaltender is within the crease or who injures an opponent as a result of a charge.

Note: A goaltender is not "fair game" just because he is outside the goal area. A penalty for interference (Minor orm at the discretion of the Referee, Major penalty and a Game Misconduct penalty) shall be called where an opposing player makes unnecessary contact with a goaltender. Likewise, Referees should be alert to penalize goaltenders for tripping, slashing, or spearing in the vicinity of the goal.
for us canadians here..
