    • Major penalties will result in the removal of the player for the remainder of that game.

    • Accrual of 3 or more penalties in a single game will result in removal from the tournament.

    • Slap shots will not be permitted due to the confined nature of cross-ice hockey.  Shots taken with a back swing that is higher than waist level will be considered a slap shot.
