Proposal 67: 14B.7.3. Penalty Goal Clarification [ Revision 2 ]Committee: Hockey
Submitted on 2017-01-07
Status: Passed on January 22, 2017
In the discussion "14B.7.2 6.5 M Clarification"we could find a big majority for the part of the wording to clarify a goal movement so far.
But we worked out that the wording from the paragraph "penalty goal" should be amended. With the wording "...illegal play of the ball..." we really limit a illegal play to the combination with the ball. If we delete the words "of the ball" from this sentence the referee is able to punish more kinds of illegal play, e.g. illegal movement of the goal.
In an other current rule 14B.8.8 (moving the goal) a referee is forced to interrupt the game in all circumstances if a player moves the goal and the opposing team gets a free shot. This stands in contrast to our discussions. depending on the situation the referee should have all options to react (advantage, free shot, 6.5 m, penalty goal).
14B.7.3. Penalty Goal
"If the defending team prevents a goal from being scored through an illegal play of the ball and if, in the opinion of the Referee, the ball was travelling directly toward the goal and would definitely have entered the goal without being touched by another player, a penalty goal may be awarded. [...]"
Please see discussion "14B.7.2 6.5 M Clarification" it is an out take from there.

From our discussion we worked out that rule 14B.8.8 (moving the goal) needs as well a change of wording. This matter is now added in this proposal.
