1958 Pre Season C.A.H.A. Rules Directive

Interesting rules directive from Bob Lebel to the referees:

Notice that there is no mention of charging, elbowing or interference.

Well isnt that interesting.... I had no idea the IIHF rules forbade fore-checking in the offensive zone contemporaneously to this article & era..... I see as well their obvious concern for what could be called an early version of the Dead Puck Era, whereby freezing the puck along the boards, kicking it forward or back, heavy stickwork inching its way into the amateur game, filtering down from the pro-ranks post war when talent was a tad scarce. Any idea when the IIHF rescinded the fore-check rule? That right there explains an awful lot in terms of how & why the game was being played the way it was in Europe, Russia.

IIHF allowed body checking in the offensive zone in the fall of 1969.

C.A.H.A. had a bit of a problem especially in Quebec as there were multiple governing bodies. Also some of the QHL, Ephl officials, linsemen would referee the MMJHL games, and other junior or juvenile games applying pro interpretations more often than not.

Huh, that late eh? I thought it was earlier.... certainly for anyone wondering where the low & high cycle game came from, considering you werent allowed to forecheck if you'd played in the lanes the way the North Americans did forget it. You'd just be angled off into the boards by the defence taking the body. With the cycle, that would be nullified to a large extent whereby youd be circling, constantly passing, drawing illegal hits actually as you'd have already gotten rid of the puck by the times the defender leans in to you or trys to. Dump & chase pretty much out as well.

Players could carry the puck out of their defensive zone without fear of being hit. Suicide outlet passes in the defensive zone were common.
