Ya that must be it


He was stick lifted, he was not carrying his stick, he had no control of his stick, he was forced to raise his stick, hence stick lift.

The rule is not clear because many situations force you to have your stick over the shoulder. Watch any game and count the number of times a players stick is over the shoulder. He didnt raise his stick, in no way was he willingly bringing his stick that high (he had the puck ffs).

The way the rules are written if you perform the movements with your arms WILLINGLY to allow your stick to be that high it is called high sticking. It does not say anything about if you were FORCED, your arms were forced to raise th stick that high.
