Frequently Asked Questions
Misconduct vs. Game Misconduct
There is a big difference between "misconduct" and "game misconduct", so please be sure you choose the correct one if the referee reports a misconduct penalty.
A misconduct (MSC) would typically accompany a minor penalty (but not always) and result in a 6 (Squirts) or 8 (PeeWee & Bantam) minute stint in the box for the penalized player along with a teammate to serve the 1-1:30 minor penalty itself. It's also important to note that if a misconduct is assessed along with a minor penalty (for example boarding), the misconduct time does not start until after the minor penalty ends, either by penalty time expiring for the other team scoring with a player advantage.
A game misconduct (GM) would typically accompany a major penalty and results in the penalized player being ejected from the game, as well as suspended from the next scheduled game, and also require a game report to be filed by the referee with USA Hockey. A teammate would serve the 3-4 minute major penalty in their stead.
Game misconducts would also be given for:
- A player (or coach) receiving 4 penalties (minor, major, and/or misconduct) in a game
- A player receiving 2 major penalties in a game, and also be suspended for an additional scheduled game (2 total).
- A player receiving 2 misconduct penalties in a game (the second misconduct becomes a game misconduct).
- A head coach whose team receives 12 penalties in a game
If you have any of these in games that you are scoring, or are unsure, it would be a good idea to ask the referee(s) to give them a close review when they come over to sign the game sheet after the game and make any edits then. After that, once the game is completed, locked & uploaded, it requires a WAHA director to make any changes.
Referees will certainly need to be aware of any recorded game misconducts. Gamesheet should automatically email them a game report to be used in their USA Hockey incident report.
