Help Needed on Rules

I haven't played organized hockey since I was a squirt.
I started playing adult pickup a few years ago. I'd like some clarification on what I'm allowed to do in playing stick on stick once an opponent plays a pass to my man but before it arrives.

How about before its played but you can see the opponenet will pass it to my man.

How about once my man is skating with teh puck? I can tap his stick from the side or lift it from underneath to try to steal the puck or interrupt his stickhandling, correct?

Thank you.

Um, it really depends on how your league is getting called.

If you play man before they have the puck, more than likely you will get called for intereference.

You can lift the stick, but you can't slash at it or slash at the hands. That is how our leauge is called...sometimes at least.

No refs, just pickup with the same guys each morning.

I'm just wondering if I can lift the stick or impede his stick while the pass to him is on its way.

Or if he is camping out in the crease, can I be a pest and and tie up his stick beofre a pass is thrown.

This guy is more talented than me, but he'll hook and and put his stick into my midsection to slow me down. I don't want to retaliate in that fashion, I just want to know what is legal in the nhl.

What determines slashing at it? I hit his stick to dislodge the puck as I'm chaing him around the defensive zone. The force is minimal and its stick on stock. Legal or not legal?

It's all referee's discretion. For myself, I will call slashing pretty well every time a player gets his stick slashed out of his hands before he gets the puck.

As long as your objective is to play the puck, you shouldn't get a penalty.

as near as i can tell, you can lift, hook down over the stick provided its below the players hands and your stick is not horizontal to the ice(becomes hooking) and in the front of the crease you can battle for position using your stick over or under theirs, lifting (again keeping your stick less than horizontal to the ice).

Obviously you dont want ot be chopping a stick out of someones hands but hten again some dont keep a tight grip and will lose it very easily. As long as your not using the stick on the opponents body or at the hands you shouldnt be getting anyone mad at you.

Gray Bettman said it best on his interview between periods on HNIC coverage of the All-Star game. Don't let your stick become horizontal or your hands be up or you may be called.
Nothing to do with Rec League rules but here's the figures from the Maritime Jr A League on rules infractions this year, they're 1st under the new rules.

Check out the "New Standards of Play" video at usahockey.com (lower portion of the home page). This video does a great job of explaining what the legal use of this stick is.

According to the video lifting the opponents stick to prevent them from playing the puck is a legal play. As long as your intention is to play the puck you should not get called.

Hope this helps

Scott
