Hockey 101: High-sticking


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) I’m Tommy Pecoraro, the play by play broadcaster of the Thunderbolts and here is this week’s Hockey 101.

Today we are talking about high-sticking.

High-sticking is when a player hits or touches a player on the other team with a stick in the head or neck region. It is often a 2 minute minor penalty, however if it draws blood, it is a 4 minute double minor or if it caused injury, a 5 minute major and often a game misconduct. There is an exception to the rule. If the high-stick is do to the follow up from a pass or shot it is not a penalty. And that’s your hockey 101 for this week. I’m Tommy Pecararo, play by play broadcaster for the thunderbolts.
