rule against defenseman standing in net?

Is there a rule against defenseman standing in net to block shots? I would think that one player + goalie can pretty much block most openings in the net. It would be a cheapshot though.

I imagined if that happened everyone would open fire on the defenseman. And the other team would have a permanent powerplay. In our pick up if the goalie is late a player would fill in but not allowed to go beyond the blueline. We all get along so I doubt that anyone would tee up a slapshot out of respect.

There isn't any rule against it that I can think of.

Though, most of the time, I have a MUCH better chance of stopping a shot without the dman there than if he was "helping" clog the net.

In emergency situations, Dmen will block the shot, otherwise they're just asking to get hurt.

There's no rule against it because it would be a terrible idea. Goalies are better at stopping pucks than players.

there is a rule in the sense that a skater cannot cover the puck in the crease, and the goalie can.

Ah, good call. That's a delay of game penalty.

No this is a legitimate question. In shinny hockey (with the nets down), some skaters would play "goalie" essentially on the small net making it incredibly hard to score.

However, by the size of the net, it would take two dman + goalie to fill up the net and even then there would be small holes where the puck can go in. It would pretty much be a permanent 5-3 power play.

A penalty shot will be awarded if a skater covers the puck in the crease.

Pretty much answered your own question here. And those holes wouldn't be very small either...

If it's shinny, why don't you just lay down?

If someone is covering the front of the net when you have it tipped over in a shinny game, they are being a D-Bag. Plain and simple.
