It's exactly a hand pass, and was called as such whenever a player did it in the offensive zone. The thing is, a Penalty seems kind of overkill for what at any other point in the game would just lead to a stoppage in play and the puck back one zone. I guess you could argue its now an intentional delay of game though, and I do like that it takes away an advantage that the defensive center had on the draw.
