Friday, September 9, 2011 Skaters must have at least one skate on the floor when executing a block.

Today's rule is another dangerous blocking technique. As explained in rule 6.15.3, "Jumping and leaping contact is unsafe for the initiator and receiver", thus any contact made with both skates off the ground results in a Misconduct major penalty. It is, however, legal for a skater to be blocked with no skates on the ground.
