Klart: Så blir nya reglerna inom svensk hockey This is just sad. Most hits are coming when players just passed the puck, but new rules in swedish hockey from this season is that you cant hit like that anymore, you can only hit when the players have the puck, wtf. This will kill the physicality in swedish hockey, it was already pretty unphysical, but not it will be even more unphysical. When will other nations make this silly rule? I hope not. Will this silly rule be the end for swedish hockey? With no hitting it will hard for swedish players to take the step to NHL, KHL etc because they will not be prepered for the physicality, it will be like an new sport for them. Not heard a single complain about this new rule in Sweden, its really a big shame.
