Hockey Canada announced Thursday the launching of a new website, www.HockeyCanada.ca/HeadContactRule, dedicated to the implementation of the new head contact rule for the 2011-12 season in female and minor hockey across the country.
Approved at the Hockey Canada Annual General Meeting in Calgary, Alta., in May, Hockey Canada’s new head contact rules are zero tolerance, implemented to cut down on the number of head injuries suffered in the game.
