On Tuesday, February 25th, (#97) Viktor Schweitzer of HC Gherdeina,was involved in an incident deemed as Kneeing on WSV Wipptal Broncos Weihenstephanforward Paolo Bustreo (#4).

As the video shows, Paolo Bustreo is in puck possession breaking into the attacking zone, driving wide in an attemptto drive to the net. As the defending player, Viktor Schweitzer is playing Bustreo 1 on 1. In an attempt to beat Schweitzer, Bustreo skates from wide side, into middle ice area.


The reason for supplementary discipline, is the defensive action Schweitzer used to gain body position on Bustreo,through the extension and use of his knee. It is deemed that Schweitzer had the correct intentions, in angling off Bustreo.When Schweitzer realized he was 1 step behind, he made – what is felt,a reactionary move in extending his knee out and into the skating lane of Bustreo.It is not deemed that Schweitzer did the knee extension with an intent to injure, but rather reactionary. Regardless, a player is responsible for his body actions and making a legal defending play. In this case the leg extension created a leg on leg contact,with no body to body contact.It is important to note, that the kneeing incident did lead to an apparent injury.

Schweitzer must refrain from the use of his leg as the contact point of checks. He must skate to be in a position to use his hip or shoulder to make a body check. When body position is not available, then a regard for puck must be considered.
