    Calder Trophy has age limit, so called "Sergei Makarov rule". No older than 26 years.

    There is also this famous "Sean Avery" rule. Something to do with Martin Brodeur.

    What are the others rules, inspired by player actions?

    Isn't there a Keenan rule regarding Goalies not getting a proper warmup when replacing a goalie because Keenan would use it to get free time outs.

    The Beliveau/Canadiens rule: A minor penalty ends early when the team with the man advantages scores a goal.

    The Gretzky/Oilers rule: If both teams took offsetting minors, the play continued with 5 vs 5 instead of 4 vs 4.

    The Bobby Hull Rule limited the curve of the stick blade as both he and Mikita used to banana blade it.

    Marty Rule for playing the puck in the corners, because Brodeur and Turco were the best at it.

    I can remember the rule that was put in to give a player wearing a visor who started a fight with another who was not wearing one an extra two minute penalty was called the "Claude Lemieux rule" because that is one of the gutless little tactics he was well known for.

    I don't know if he was specifically credited for the rule, but Seals goalie Gary "Suitcase" Smith was known for his wandering past center ice with the puck, which resulted in the rule prohibiting that. Ed Giacomin was also wandering too around that time.

    You might call it the Marty Rule, but I've seen it called the Brodeur rule more often:

    Two random sources:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/16/sports/hockey/brodeur-feels-defanged-by-nhls-new-rule.html
    https://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/p...yer-inspired-NHL-rules-changes?urn=nhl,263622

    Actually, the second source is called "The 10 best player-inspired rule changes."

    Flyers GM Bobby Clarke was the one who pushed the Marty/Brodeur rule through, which was the main reason why Devils fans were so suspicious of the intentions behind it.

    Jacques Plante

    NHL tried to pass a similar rule to stop Jacques Plante from roving and playing the puck in the second half of the fifties. Was voted down.

    Praying Benny's Rule? The rule which says that a goalie can stop the game by covering the puck, requiring a faceoff near the goalie? Named after Clint Benedict, I believe. Not a common name for the rule.

    Didn't Rob Ray have something instituted along the fight strap line? Basically because he'd rig his jersey so he could slide out of it when an opponent would grab a fistful of material.

    I think there might be a little confusion on this one. AFAIK the goalie has always been able to force a faceoff by covering the puck. You may be thinking of the rule which allowed goalies to drop to the ice, rather than being require to stay on their feet the entire game. Benedict was famous for "accidentally" falling down on a regular basis to cover the puck with his body while avoiding a penalty, so finally the league gave up and changed the rule.

    Yes, it's in the puck daddy article I posted. Their 10 player inspired rules were:

    1. The Marty Brodeur Rule
    2. The Sean Avery Rule
    3. The Bobby Hull Rule
    4. The Rob Ray Rule
    5. The Sugden-Moriarty Rule (from junior hockey, another fighting related jersey rule)
    6. The Bill Barber Rule (diving)
    7. The Roger Neilson Rule (i guess the only way puck daddy could get to 10 was to use a coach...)
    8. The Montreal Canadiens Power-Play Rule
    9. The Gretzky Rule
    10. The Cooke/Richards Rule (another stretch by puck daddy... this one about headshots)

    .... :laugh: yeah, and that's a great shot of Hull's stick taken from that angle. gives you a really good idea of just how warped some of those Banana Blades could be. just crazy. the puck in flight breaking every rule of physics, flight. as a goalie impossible to project, telegraph trajectory.Thank God for Jacques Plante & the mask, whole school of Goaltending in Stand-Up & playing the angles (anti-dote to the Slapshot & Banana Blades) because if not for that... My God.... You cant stop what you cant see, cant tell where the pucks going in that split second it leaves the blade off of a blade like that, just have to keep moving out towards the shooter to take away the net completely & hope in some cases it just hits you or goes wide.... Todays goalies faced with similar with the Composite Sticks, incredibly fast release, fast and HARD/HEAVY shots.

    The Glen Hanlen and Gary Bromley rule.

    Just to show how old I am.

    Once upon a time a goalie was able to leave his stick in the crease. Vancouver pulled the goalie A lot and they left their goalies did this a lot

    Huh, weird. To try and stop people from scoring, I assume?

    Only thing I remember about Bromley was his freakish skull mask. Might be one of my first hockey memories. :laugh:

    ------

    Edit: Oh, I see from the article above that this "stick in the crease" thing was a Roger Neilson special. He also once swapped in a defensemen for the goalie to try to stop a penalty shot — another idea that had to be legislated out. *And* he was responsible for this rule change:

    Here, watch this Seals-Leafs game from Feb. 1970. In the 3rd period, Smith goes for a stroll past center ice with the puck. :handclap:

    Zenon Kenopka rule: Can't use your hand off the faceoff. Zenon used to fall on the puck and then pass back when in the defensive zone.
