Has anyone seen this possible new rule change in the EIHL if they follow the IIHF rule book to the letter, not sure if previously mentioned on here?
Surely they won't bring it in after so many fighters have been signed up by teams?


Under 21/22 IIHF rules a willing combatant being assessed a fighting penalty will be an automatic 5 + game.

I thought that rule had always been the case in the IIHF rule book? It has been for IIHF competitions and I’m sure almost all European leagues.

Ah right I didnt realise as the twitter EIHL polls account has written it as if its a new rule for this season. I really hope its not brought in to our league.
