The closest we have in here is
A player is always entitled to use his body position to lengthen an opponent’s path to the puck,
[a] his stick is not utilized (to make himself “bigger” and therefore considerably lengthening the distance his opponent must travel to get where he is going);
[b] his free hand is not used and
[c] he does not take advantage of his body position to deliver an otherwise illegal check.
If there is NO contact there is NO penalty. Give an example here or something .... cripes I have never seen an interference call made when there is no contact.
Enlighten me because I cannot discern anything from the posted quotes in here to tell me otherwise. I'll go along with it if I get a proper example my dumb ass can understand lol.
If you use your free hand it is holding. If you use your stick it is hooking etc if not skating in position in the same direction as the player is already.
The point you're missing is that the quote I posted also does not say anything about contact, only the action of blocking an opponent from getting to a puck that you are not attempting to play. If contact were a requirement for interference, it would be listed.
