- The Head Coach is now suspended if the team receives 12 or more penalties in a game (used to be 15).
- All Youth/Girls levels are now prohibited from icing the puck when short handed, with the exception of High School.
- Tag up offsides has now been eliminated at all Youth/Girls levels with the exception of High School.
