STOP – Safety Towards Other Players

Posted in: Useful Information — admin @ 8:29 am

As you may know, MAHA requires “STOP” patches on the back of all
Safety Towards Other Players (STOP) is intended to raise awareness
of the dangers of checking from behind in the game of hockey.

The S.T.O.P. program was developed in 1996 by Mr. Kevin Stubbington,
Director of Referees for the Windsor (Canada) Minor Hockey Association.

Today, over 265,000 patches have been distributed throughout
North America and Canada.

The program sends a message to all players that the dangerous act
of checking-from-behind is not accepted in the game of hockey. The
program also promotes the overall values of Safety and Fair Play.

Find a blank scoresheet here


1.) Team scoring summary by period across the top.

2.) Team rosters come next. It is helpful for announcers to list goalie and captains first. It is also helpful to circle the numbers of the starters.

3.) Mark shots on goal with a slash ‘/’. Circle ‘O’ shots that result in goals.

4.) Scoring and Penalty Summary

PD – period of play.

PP/SH – mark for power-play or short-handed goals

TIME – time of goal or infraction

GOAL – scorer

ASST1, ASST2 – first and second assists

HOME/AWAY – check team incurring penalty

START – time penalty begins

END – time penalty ends

Some scorers count up from 0:00. Others use the time as it is on the scoreboard. Either is fine, as long as you know what it means, and stay consistent.
