This is how I see it anyway...

You have given your stick away to teammate, putting yourself at a disadvantage. If you pick up a stick that is not yours, you are re-gaining the advantage that you willingly gave away.

A related rule...gonna have some fun here...

Can anybody tell me the penalties assessed when a player from the bench throws his stick to a teammate, and that teammate catches it?

Without looking at a rulebook.
