Hooking (ice hockey)

Hooking in ice hockey is a penalty. The NHL covers hooking in Rule 55, which defines it as "the act of using the stick in a manner that enables a player or goalkeeper to restrain an opponent." The NHL groups hooking with other "Restraining fouls" such as holding, interference and tripping.[1]

Hooking in the rules

The NHL covers hooking in Rule 55, which defines it as "the act of using the stick in a manner that enables a player or goalkeeper to restrain an opponent." It goes on to specify that "when a player is checking another in such a way that there is only stick-to-stick contact, such action is not to be penalized as hooking." The NHL groups hooking with other "Restraining fouls" such as holding, interference and tripping.[1]

The IIHF covers hooking in Rule 533, defining a player guilty of hooking as one "who impedes or seeks to impede the progress of an opponent by hooking him with the stick." [2]

Both codes allow for hooking to be penalized with either a minor or major penalty; the latter is imposed for injuring an opponent by hooking, and carries with it an automatic game misconduct.

Emphasis in NHL

Following the 2004-2005 NHL lockout, then NHL made "Zero tolerance on Interference, Hooking and Holding/Obstruction" its top priority for game officials.[3] Since that time the league and its officials have made a significant effort to follow up on that priority, and the game is being played in a more open style as a result.
