We have been posting goalie fights galore. Now, the team over at have uncovered for everyone, the new signal to show that a player will be receiving a fighting major penalty.

Hands up in front of yourself, with fists clenched, will now be seen in every single fight video we can find it for you and I for one am excited.

If you want to read about all the rules changes (tweaks more so), then absolutely encourage you to check out the article they wrote at ScoutingTheRefs.

Check those out here.

Looking forward to the 2021 season kick off.
