regarding hooking (1 hand or 2 hands?)

anyone ever been called for hooking with one hand on the stick? i got called for it last night. thought it was kind of silly as the guy was bigger than me, i just reached out and poked at his hands. i did get my blade in there, but alas.....penalty.

i couldnt slow him down with one hand so i was kind of peeved at the call. thoughts on this?

it's not that unusual especially if you A) got the guy around the hands or B) stopped moving your feet.
the guy being bigger than you has little to nothing to do with it.

good point about moving feet, i may have sprinted to catch up, then stopped moving my feet when i reached.

didnt even think of that.

One time I got called for a penalty by each ref at the same time, one for cross checking, one for holding. How you can get a penalty for cross checking (both hands on the stick into the player) AND holding (removing a hand to get around the guy) I'll never know.

You will almost always get called if you stop moving your feet and get your stick parallel to the ice. When a ref sees that it's almost an automatic call. Most of the time you're just pressuring the guy and not hooking, but you'll get called on it almost every time.

As HolyRollie says, it's not so much that you were able to stop the guy, but where you had your stick. We had a talk about what's a stick check vs hooking recently with our coach - that you had your blade at the level of the other guys hands is what got you called. Keep your blade on the lower half of the other guys stick, and don't hold it there for too long and you'll be okay.

Legit call, any time you get your stick up in a opponent's hands you should expect to be called for hooking, doesn't matter if you have 1 or 2 hands on your stick.
