IIHF Rule 141 – Fighting

  1. The ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga governing body does not support fighting in junior hockey.

  2. The IIHF Rule, as interpreted by the on-ice officials, does not change: a 5-minute penalty and game misconduct are to be assessed, plus any additional penalties that maybe may have occurred.

  3. New – For all games where there are multiple fights (more than 1 fight), either at a stoppage or accumulated throughout the game, in addition to the on-ice penalties and player regulations from DOPS, the head coach of the offending team(s) is subject to an automatic game suspension and his club will be assessed a € 250.- fine.

  4. Fighting game misconducts will now accumulate throughout a hockey season. In addition to the above suspension and fine criteria for single games, when a team reaches 5 fighting game misconducts in a single season (inclusive of multiple fights at a stoppage or single fights throughout a season), the head coach will be subject to automatic game suspension and the club will be assessed a € 250.- fine.

  5. When a team is deemed the instigator or aggressor (cause) within the game of multiple fights, either at a stoppage or cumulative, the head coach of the team deemed the “cause” of the fights is subject to a suspension of 3 games or more, plus subject to a fine directly to the coach and a € 500.- fine to the respective team.

    * Exception: if one team is deemed the instigator or aggressor of the fights (cause), then the automatic game suspension to the non-violator team may be rescinded.
