I think this is a huge problem in the majority of rec leagues where the officiating is just beyond terrible. They don't even know how to respond to something that obviously does not even belong in the game of hockey, just an act of pure violence. Offenders think they can get away with it because it happens during a 'hockey game' and sadly, they often do.

If that happens, the cops should be called on him and he should be banned from the rink as well as the remainder of the season. That's what would happen here anyway, possibly more. The problem is that some players don't even know the rules themselves either, and so can't challenge any wrongdoing effectively. I also do wonder at times if players actually realize what is viewed as 'part of hockey' or just pure neanderthalic stupidity.
