1. A player, including goalkeeper, whose stick is broken is forbidden to receive a stick thrown onto the ice from either the players’ bench or from a spectator, but he may receive a stick from a teammate on the ice without having to proceed to his players’ bench to obtain a new one. This exchange from a broken stick to a new stick must be made hand-to-hand. A player who throws, tosses, slides, or shoots a stick to a teammate will be assessed a minor penalty.
