Sorry TS. It actually became a rather large problem last year. Manny Malhotra began using his hand to bat the puck back when his stick got tied up on defensive zone faceoffs. As with everything, it began to spread. A number of teams began using it is a faceoff tool and the league wanted to put a stop to it before it became wide spread.
Something's wrong when a mother in California paid $9,500 for her son's jail costs, which she did so by selling her house and going bankrupt. California is one of 19 states that charges parents for their children's detention -- even if they're ultimately found not guilty.
