NHL Rulz

  • by

When a player commits a penalty and gets injured (like Beagle in last night’s Caps game), the penalty is served by a substitute (in that case, Ovie).  Rule 8.1.  But can the penalized team pick anyone to serve the penalty?  NHL Rules (now at our Reference Page) don’t seem to limit.  But if so, why pick Ovie?
