Multiple-Player Block - one penalty?
« on: July 09, 2011, 06:22:56 pm »
First assumption, a MPB is one action and therefore only one blocker should receive the penalty. Is this correct?

Second, if both blockers appear equally responsible you should call it on the blocker closest to you. Is this correct?

A skater asked me about this today and I gave her my assumptions but told her I would check to make sure they are accurate. I did a search and did not find an answer.

The "one action-one penalty" axiom applies to situations where one skater does one action that is illegal multiple ways.  For instance, an out of play back block.  While she broke two rules, she did it with one action, therefore she only gets one penalty, not two. 

If both blockers are actively multi-player blocking, they're both to be penalized, because they're both committing a penalty.  This is not one action, this is two distinct actions committed by two different players.  You see this mainly when both players are actively holding on to each other.

You can call me "Shaun". My shirts say "Ketterman" because they're sports jersies. Only kids and mascots put first names on jersies!

Thanks for the clarification.

just trying to clarify this as it came up today (game on 12-8-12 current rules)
if the arms are intertwined and fingers interlaced, would you send both blockers off?  i've been taught (possibly incorrectly) that a multiplayer block went to the most responsible or the closest if both equal.

it would be the same for a philli wall. (players facing each other side on to the direction of game play)  if they are both holding then they both get sent?
the rules are the Sticky Beatsyouwith

Yes.

If they are both holding and the link impedes an opponent then yes, both are penalized.

[rule]6.7.8
Maintaining a multi-­‐player block to impede or block an opponent, including to prevent another skater receiving a block from an opponent for any amount of time.[/rule]
