Tell your son to just hold his ground. If the defenseman tries to push him from his position that is interference. I imagine that your son began to push back, which would then be interference as well. Let the defenceman push you, he'll end up in the box.

You can stand wherever you want now as long as you don't have the puck. The new rules benifit fast skilled players, but also big forwards who operate around the net. You can actually use your size and stregnth now when you have the puck and not have to worry about two guys tackleing you.

Great physical play was my forte on defense!
And it still should be. You just arn't allowed to interfere with people anymore. No one said you can't hit. My team has played a game under these rules and there was plenty of physical play, just not interference and hooking.
