The rule is impeding progress, not from receiving a pass or deflecting a pass, impeding progress.

If he is lifting the guys stick and that player is trying to put his stick on the ice and both are using there strength to either keep it up or keep it down then that is impeding him and a penalty.
If both players continue towards the net, it's not a penalty.

It amazes me how people read the rules and then come up with a scenario that does not acurately reflect the case in point.
