‎9.2.1.1.2 If the jam starts with too many skaters and the extra skater cannot be pulled, the referee must stop the jam. The team must be penalized according to Section 6.13.6.

When a jam starts with too many skaters (as discussed earlier, more than 4 Blockers and 1 Jammer per team) it is important to get the extra skater removed, as discussed in yesterday’s Rule of the Day. Today’s rule explains that if the extra skater cannot be pulled from the jam, the jam must be stopped by the referees, and a penalty given to the offending team, per 6.13.6. The team responsible for getting the jam called would receive a major Illegal Procedure, issued to the skater who was instructed to return to her bench.
