Yea this. I don't see why this is so difficult to implement. I get that some contact to the head is incidental but so is high sticking and that gets called. Pretty easy to throw a set scale of penalties in for this which would start the players down a path of curbing headshots. The most embarassing thing for a player is taking a dumb penalty IN gameplay and getting burned. Fines and suspensions, post game, aren't the answer.
Same with icing. How hard is it to implement no touch icing. It's way safer and doesn't really hinder anything really. Hybrid shmy-brid i say. Someone said a college team got burned by a bad call off of one of these on the weekend. Last thing we need is another task for on-ice-officials where they use their judgement.
I'm ok with outlawing the hand pass in your own zones, though.
