IceHogs to fine players for minor penalties

The Rockford IceHogs lead the American Hockey League in minor penalties, according to an article by Reed Schreck in the Rockford Register Star. Mike Haviland, coach of the IceHogs, has decided that preaching to the team about not taking penalties isn’t working.

“Our stick penalties have to go down. We’ve got to get it nipped in the bud now,” Haviland said. “There’s no reason to have stick penalties in March. (Players have) got to be more disciplined; they’ve got to be smarter.” Haviland has said the team will pay unspecified fines for minor penalties.
