Most penalties that are called are obvious infractions. Just because they're obvious of blatant doesn't mean they always warrant misconducts along with them.

The officials are registered with USA Hockey (from what I read here), which means they have to be registered with a local association. Somebody is providing the officials. It's like Jr.A in Canada....the officials are not officials for the leagues, they are officials provided by the provincial branches (IE: BCHL officials are provided by BCAHA).
