The record for the most penalty minutes in a season was held by Dave Schultz of the Philadelphia Flyers with 472 in the 1974–75 NHL season.  The record for the most career penalty minutes is held by Tiger Williams, who has had 3,966 in 14 years.  With the retirement of Zdeno Chara in 2022, no active player has more than 2,000 penalty minutes. A team with a numerical advantage in players will enter a powerplay. If they score a goal during this time, the penalty ends and the offending player can return to the ice.  In the formative years of ice hockey, teams were shortened for the duration of a small penalty. The NHL changed this rule after the 1955-56 season, when the Montreal Canadiens often scored multiple goals on a power play. The most famous was a game on November 5, 1955, when Jean Béliveau scored three goals in 44 seconds in the 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins, all on the same power play.  Coaches or players may sometimes choose to commit a violation intentionally. In some cases, it is hoped that the violation can be hidden from officials to avoid punishment. Gordie Howe was a player known for his ability to commit violations without being called. However, this penalty still applies to Canadian ice hockey.
“A penalty for serious misconduct will be imposed on any player or team official who behaves in such a way that it represents a parody of the game.”  There was equal parts of laziness, business, and confusion that led to why it took so long to write this post. There is no way to write a summary of the different scenarios properly when the random criminal rule is invoked. In fact, I flirted with the idea of just skipping this rule and dealing with it another day. Then he didn`t flirt with me and instead threw the flowers into the rain drain after hitting me in the face. While goaltenders can be assessed with penalties, a goalie cannot enter the penalty box and the penalty must instead be served by another player on their team who was on the ice at the time of the offense (the PIM will be charged to the goalie). However, if the goaltender receives (a) three main penalties (NHL Rule 28.2), (b) a penalty for gambling misconduct (NHL Rule 28.4) or (c) a game penalty (NHL Rule 28.5), he will be excluded for the remainder of the game and will need to be replaced. The offending player(s) will be sent to the penalty box, where they must stay until the penalty expires. Normally, a team is not allowed to replace the player punished on the ice. The player returns directly to the ice as soon as the penalty has expired. This creates a power play in which the punished team has one less player than its opponent and is called “shortness of breath”.
If two players from a team are in the penalty zone at the same time, it is called “five against three” (as usual, goalkeepers are not counted in this expression) or “two-on-two advantage”. Additional players may be penalized, but a team will never play with fewer than three skaters on the ice. Additional penalties will be deferred until one of the previous penalties expires (see stacked penalties below). Other leagues usually impose penalties for additional violations. For example, most adult social leagues and women`s hockey leagues prohibit all body checks (a penalty for rudeness or illegal control is called), and in most amateur leagues, any contact with the head results in a penalty. If a player pulls another woman`s ponytail, he will be charged with a penalty for misconduct in the game. The fault of moving the goal posts is treated differently from one league to another; It was a penalty shootout in the past, but after David Leggio started committing the foul intentionally to disrupt scoring chances, the American Hockey League declared such an act to be game misconduct and the German Ice Hockey League automatically awarded the goal. It is also not uncommon for players to “dive” or make a limit appear as a punishment by embellishing or exaggerating their response; However, this is a punishment in itself, although it is applied inconsistently. It wasn`t until 1904 that players were banned from the ice for offenses. At this point, a referee could judge a penalty of two, three or five minutes depending on the severity of the foul. Until 1914, all penalties lasted five minutes, two years later, reduced to three minutes, and the offending player was fined an additional. When the National Hockey League (NHL) was founded in 1917, it ordered that a team not be allowed to replace a player who was fined, so he had to play in shorthand for the duration.
The penalty was shortened to two minutes for the 1921-22 season, while five- and ten-minute penalties were added two years later.  While a team is in the short version, it is allowed to freeze the puck at will without the icing injury being directed against it.
