To hurt enough that when they enter your zone, they don't cut across the ice to get a shot in the slot. You hit to hurt, so they don't try long breakaway passes. You keep it clean, but you get in their head and establish fear/doubt so they're off their game.

Semi-contact is meant to rub someone off the puck. That's not high level hockey. That's pond hockey. That's not what I pay to watch.
Exactly this.

Think twice about trying that again!!!!
