Wednesday, December 18, 2013 Pack destructions as a result of normal gameplay are not to be considered illegal pack destructions and should not be penalized. Skaters still must reform a pack immediately or be subject to out of play penalties (see Section 6.10.6 and Section 6.10.7). Examples of normal gameplay which should not be considered illegal pack destructions include:

Today's rule comes from the Out Of Play section. While there is always much discussion about what constitutes illegal destruction of the pack, there are certain actions deemed by the rules to always be considered legal destruction of the pack. Two actions are listed as subrules to this one. Both actions are normal parts of gameplay and if the pack is destroyed by a skater performing either action, there be no penalty issued.
