Appears to me to be more cash grab than a safety issue.
You are on to them, they have been seeing a huge decrease in registration in the second yr of Peewee, this has been an issue for some years now. They will see a huge increase in Peewee players staying for the full two years and most likely quitting in Bantam now.
Hockey is getting expensive and it not automatic that every 5 year will play hockey now.
