6.12.1 Being forced out of bounds by an opponent’s block.

This is in the no impact/no penalty section of Skating Out Of Bounds. If a skater is blocked out of bounds by an opponent they will not receive a SOOB penalty if they increase or maintain speed while out of bounds. It is to be noted that this rule says "opponent" not "skater" which means that if a skater's teammate knocks her out of bounds, she is eligible to receive a Skating Out Of Bounds penalty.
