‎3.5.7 A star pass may be blocked by the opposing team by any means of legal blocking.

During a star pass the only people eligible to touch the Jammer helmet cover are the Jammer and Pivot. The Blockers on their team may not hand it off between them, and the opposing team skaters may not touch it either. They may only use legal blocking to block a star pass. Legal blocking in this case would be any legal contact from a legal blocking zone to a legal target zone. You know, regular blocking. If a Jammer is about to hand her helmet cover to her Pivot and an opponent legally hip checks her, sending the helmet cover flying, that is perfectly legal. If the opponent grabs the helmet cover and skates away, well, she's certainly going to receive an Illegal Procedure major.
