Curious what people’s thoughts are on the rules changes for USA Hockey.

Just a few:

– Tag-Up offsides eliminated in Bantams (previously eliminated in levels below).

– Face-off location after penalties will be in defending zone of offending team. With the obvious exceptions (after goals, start of period, etc).

– Major + Game added as a minimum for slew-footing.

– Shorthanded icing now eliminated from all levels (other than adult, was previously eliminated at certain levels).

– Major penalties now include an automatic Game Misconduct.

More whistles, slower games.
