NHL Adjusting Rule Book

NHL referees will now be armed with the rule that body checks aimed at the head of a player will be penalized, and harshly at that.

The new enforcement will include a major/game misconduct.  The rule is aimed at the “blindsided” hit, where the player receiving the check is unaware of it happening.

Kudos to the NHL for putting it on the books.

Here is a story from MetroNews in Canada.
