New OHL Rules for 2009-2010

Playing Rule:

Following in line with the NHL, the OHL will no longer enforce a 10-minute misconduct for players receiving a penalty for diving. The infraction will only consist of a 2-minute minor penalty.

Definition of an OHL Rookie:

In order to be considered a rookie in the Ontario Hockey League, a player must begin their first season of play as a seventeen (17) year old or younger. Second year players that are seventeen (17) years of age or younger would also receive rookie status if they played in less than a quarter of the regular season the previous year.
Kadri ought to have a blast with the first rule change!

As far as changing the definition of rookie, it's been a long time coming and I'm glad to see it.

Actually, this rule change should cause MORE diving penalties to be called than before. Why? Because in the past, referees seldom called star players for diving unless it was in the last few minutes of a blowout. Star players who dove a lot knew this and for the most part, there was no reason not to dive.

Now, with the ref not having to worry about sending a star player to the box for 12 minutes, you'll see more diving calls!!! No doubt this is why the rule was changed.

Now all they have to do is start dishing out diving penalties for the guys who blatently spin around to try and draw a hitting from behind penalty!!!

Also, the guy who is facing the boards, sees the opponant cruising in behind him either out of the corner of his eye or in the reflection in the glass, and then jumps into the boards headfirst to draw a penalty should be nailed too.

Example: Last year during the Rangers home opener vs Plymouth, Jason Akeson did just this when he seen Kaine Geldart coming in behind him and as a result, seeing his teammate lying prone on the ice, Mike Mascioli jumps Geldart swings away at him ... even after being told to stop by the ref and earns himself a suspension.

I'm not saying Mazz didn't deserve to be suspended, but if Akeson doesn't do what he did, Mazz has no reason to not only jump Geldart, but to do so with such emotion to the point where he earned himself a suspension.

The second rule isn't a surprise. It's done because of 19 year old Evgeny Grachev winning ROY last year.

There are numerous 18 year olds who have won it in the past as well. I think it's a good rule - give the ROY to a real rookie.

Indeed. I believe Sergei Kostitsyn won it as well.
