Either that or very strange rules in your beer league (lots of beer leagues do have their own rules, for example in my league you can fire the puck down without icing starting at your own blue line, not the red line).
It depends on how often and how high you lift the stick, and WHERE you do it,

If you lift on the shaft towards the hands, your probability of getting it called as a hook is extremely high now.

If you keep skating and lift near the blade and don't bring it over the guys head, etc, best description is to pop it up, you aren't going to get called.
