5.2.4 Illegal Blocking Zones: Apply to the body parts of the skater performing a block. Skaters may not initiate contact with the following parts of the body:

Today’s rule is a subheader of the Contact Zones section of the rules. It isn’t a new rule. However, it was revised in this version of the rules. It wasn’t a major change, however it now makes a lot more sense when reading. The last sentence, “Skaters may not initiate contact with the following parts of the body”, was added. This doesn’t change the meaning of the rule at all. It just adds some clarification.
