Maybe the league can have some red, blinking neon lights below the ice surface that let’s us know, free shots available here.
from Damien Cox of The Spin,
Now, the Torres/hitting zone ruling might come as a bit of a surprise to Jarret Stoll given that he was given a one-game suspension last week for hitting San Jose’s Ian White into the glass behind the net. So the “hitting zone” - “separate head from body zone?” - area apparently doesn’t extend all the way from the goal line to the glass, but just to some ill-defined area immediately behind the net.
Having been now to three of four GMs meetings and NHL board of governors meetings at which head shots and concussions were extensively discussed, I can assure you I’ve never, EVER heard of any special rules for hits behind the net. Several NHL managers were mystified about this concept when contacted.
