hand,
penalties and other infractions that can pose a threat to the team or a player
can be a good

 

solution
to go by. With plays and moves being dangerous in its own, the real reason
behind

 

theses
plays are because of player aggravation at hate-motivated plays within the
sport of

 

hockey.
Aggressive behavior has been a staple of this sport, but with this anger comes

 

consequences,
and one such consequence is injury.  In
the peer-review journal called

 

“Effectiveness
of interventions to reduce aggression and injuries among ice hockey players: A

 

systematic
review.”  Medical personnel from the Division
of Neurosurgery at the University of

 

 Toronto considered and examined closely at studies
that were aimed at aggressive behavior.

 

 While this is good information, the part that
is most intriguing is that of penalties, which make

 

 up for actions that are against the rule book,
and can result in player being placed in the penalty

 

 box for a short amount of time while the other
team has a main advantage for this period. Within

 

 the studies that were conducted, the journal
states “Of 13 studies that evaluated changes in

 

mandatory
rules intended to lessen aggression (most commonly the restriction of body

 

checking),
11 observed a reduction in penalty or injury rates associated with rule
changes, and 9

 

of
these showed a statistically significant decrease.” (Effectiveness of interventions to
reduce

 

aggression and injuries among
ice hockey players: A systematic review, 2013). Even though this

 

may
sound confusing and bad, it’s good. When the leagues changes rules to fit with current

 

issues
such as certain moves and plays that can give leeway to more safer play, for example, if a

 

rule
was changed, such as cross checking and blind hits, this could eliminate moves
and actions

 

can
result in serious bodily harm. In addition to this, these new rule changes can
also set example

 

to younger
players and give them the idea that its not acceptable in that their team could
be down

 

a player and down overall
considering their own actions.
