He, she, or another available player will have to serve the time designated for the offense in either the penalty box or the locker room, depending on the seriousness of the infraction.

Interference in ice hockey is when you hinder the movement of a player who does not possess the puck. You can body check the play with the puck and no penalty will be called. If you body check a player away from the puck, an interference penalty will be called.

Nothing, the penalty is not carried over to the next game (if that's what you're wondering).

A power play in hockey occurs when a player is called for a penalty. The team who does not have a player in the penalty box will have a man advantage known as the power player. Typically it is 5 on 4 but it can vary in numbers depending on the situation.

No, a penalty shot is called when a player has a clear breakway and is obstructed in any illegal way. When a referee calls a penalty shot, there is no choice, the player who was obstructed must take the shot.

Fighting is not legal in hockey, however it still happens, but usually not until bantam and highschool. IF a player injures another player in a fight, they receive a match penalty which is a 5 minute major and a 1 game suspension

It's quite common for a player to use the back of his stick to control the puck. If he uses it for something else, such as to strike another player, that would be a penalty.

Yes it is because it is still a single person penalty.

you get one player off the ice usually for about two minutes during the penalty

It all depends on the penalty. In minor hockey If a player receives a 5 minute major, they are automatically ejected from the game, and someone else will serve that 5 minutes. You can get a M21 which is a 10 minute penalty for harassment of the official. So a major penalty could be 5 minutes or it could be 10. -David

Violently hit, or slam a player into the boards. If an injury occurs, it is a major penalty. If there is no injury, it is a minor penalty.

If you are in the penalty box, you are playing hockey. Hockey is the only major U.S sport that does not have fouls. When a foul or fight occurs in hockey, you are subjected to the penalty box for a certain amount of time. If you are in a fight in hockey you are allowed to continue to fight until at least one player has hit the ice then it must stop, and once that is over with both players must go to the penalty box.

Its a 2:00 minute penalty given to a player who attempts to draw a penalty by faking or elaborating what actually happened. For example falling when they were hardly touched.

A hockey penalty occurs if a player breaks a rule AND if the breaking of that rule is punishable by either a minor, major, misconduct, match misconduct, or match penalty. Not all rule infractions are punishable by a penalty. A few that are not: hand pass, icing, off-sides, and high-sticking the puck.
