Kicking rule interpretation...

K, i didnt know where to put this thread or even what to call it, but i want to ask you guys what you think of the play im going to explain to you.


Yesterday at hockey, I was in front of the net, one timed a pass which the goalie saved, then in the scrum that had assembled since I shot, I unknowingly stepped on the puck, I then fell back hard, but the puck went shooting into the net.

Now, I never did kick the puck, because I was stepping on it, but it probably was a distinct kicking motion.

It was just drop in hockey, so there was no 'review' on it, but everyone said "I dont know". What do you guys think, goal or no goal, and why?

ha ha. That's soo ridiculous!

I would think that in the NHL, this goal wouldn't be allowed. The spirit of the "no kicking motion" is that you are not propelling the puck into the net with your foot. Although stepping on the puck and subsequently falling is not technically a kicking motion, you are propelling the puck into the net with your foot.

That's awesome. If you honestly didn't mean to do it, then it should be a goal, but there's no way an NHL ref would buy a "I didn't mean to" argument. In your league, I'd say goal.

It would be a goal, you didn't kick it in, you did nothing wrong.

If there was a distinct "propelling" motion... No goal.

I'd say no goal. Even if it looks like it was by accident it could have just as easily be looked like as you did it on purpose.

It would 100% have to look like an accident..like you skating backwords and not seeing the puck then stepping on it and it going on for me at least to call it a goal.

Just like tripping, intent is not a factor. When you fell your foot bent forward in a KICKING MOTION...simple...no goal.

I think in Hockey Canada rules, if your skate blade is off the ice and you direct the puck into the net with said skate, it's no goal. So, if you're stepping on the puck, your skate is off the ice, so No Goal.

nope....you can lift the skate or try to jump into the air on a screen. If the puck goes off the skate and into the net its a goal, as long as the skate is not kicked at the puck. Lifting or jumping straight up off the ice is OK.

It's a goal. He didn't kick the puck. You have to kick the puck.

If you saw enough of these calls in the NHL this year, you'd know what he's describing counts in the NHL.

It's just like how striding into a puck you can't see is a goal because there is no distinct kicking motion.

I disagree and rule 70 isnt specific about the scenario. I believe it is covered in hte situations manual though. No goal....

It would be whatever the referee decided.

Whatever the ref's decision, one team would not be happy about it !

Such is the game.

No goal. As already stated, intent is not a factor. Because he was standing on the puck and the motion was there, it would have to be a no goal call.
