Hockey Canada has introduced a rulebook update to focus on recognizing and reporting incidents of maltreatment.  New to the 2021-2022 season, Hockey Canada introduced Section 11 - Maltreatment.  This brings all forms of maltreatment under one section of the rulebook and provides guidelines for escalating penalties based on the severity of inappropriate behaviour from players and team officials.
