Rule 37. Goaltender Penalties
(a) No goaltender shall be sent to the penalty bench for an infraction which incurs a Minor, Major or Misconduct penalty. Instead, such a penalty shall be served by any player of her team who was on the floor at the time of the infraction. Such player shall be designated by the Manager or Coach of the penalized team through the Captain. Unless the penalty being served is a time penalty, any player serving a penalty on behalf of a goaltender shall leave the penalty box if the offending goaltender is subsequently ejected from the game.
(b) An alternate goaltender may replace a regular goaltender who has been ejected from the game or has been assessed a Game Misconduct, Gross Misconduct or a Match penalty. In the event there is no alternate goaltender recorded on the playing line-up, the regular goaltender’s place may be taken by any player on the Game Report designated by the Manager or Coach of the penalized team through the Captain. Such substitute will be allowed fifteen minutes to put on the full goaltender’s equipment.
(c) When a goaltender leaves her goal crease during a fight, she shall be assessed a Minor penalty, plus any other penalties she incurs.
(d) When a goaltender leaves her goal crease to join in a fight, act as a peacemaker, or take part in another fight, during the same stoppage of play, she shall receive a Game Misconduct penalty, plus any other penalties she incurs.
(e) If a goaltender intentionally participates in the play in any manner when she is beyond the centre red line, she shall be assessed a Minor penalty.
(f) A Minor penalty shall be assessed a goaltender who, after catching the ball, drop kicks the ball. If injury results, a Major penalty and a Game Misconduct penalty shall be assessed.
