The severity of the penalty, based upon the degree of violence of the impact with the boards, shall be at the discretion of the Referee.

There is an enormous amount of judgment involved in the application of this rule by the Referees. The onus is on the player (or goalkeeper) applying the check to ensure his opponent is not in a vulnerable position and if so, he must avoid the contact. However, there is also a responsibility on the player with the puck to avoid placing himself in a dangerous and vulnerable position. This balance must be considered by the Referees when applying this rule.


There is just as much responsibility on the hitter not to take advantage of a vulnerable player as there is for a player to "keep his head up". It is up to the ref to make the call. Personally I can't see how at least a 4 minute boarding call was not made against Sauer. How violent does the hit have to be?

I'll have to see this other hit before saying anything about that one. But this love affair with brain scrambling hits is just looney tunes to me

When you read the rule it is hard to argue that it wasn't boarding really. Although it was 100% up to the refs discretion to make the call.
