It's similar to most European leagues. EIHL is much more North American style due to all the imports so the rules are less harsh on physical play.

All EIHA governed leagues in the UK are a lot softer than IIHF though, most notably with headshots, and then there is the absolute gem and my personal favourite; automatic match penalty for a high stick which draws blood
