 Match penalties shall require a hearing by the Supplementary Disciplinary
Committee at a regularly scheduled date. Offending players are not allowed
to participate in any games, scrimmages or practices until the Supplementary
Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the incident.  Any subsequent incident
will also be referred to the   Supplementary Disciplinary Committee.  As a
result, the player/team official may be suspended from participating in any
Minnesota Hockey/USA Hockey sanctioned games for the remainder of the year.
If a match penalty is assessed for Physical Assault, the player or coach
will be required to attend a Supplementary Disciplinary Committee hearing
conducted by Minnesota Hockey.

Any coach receiving a game misconduct is suspended for the next previously
scheduled league, scrimmage, tournament or playoff game and must attend the
next scheduled Supplementary disciplinary hearing for possible additional
suspensions.  (Supplementary discipline per USA Hockey)

When a coach receives a game misconduct, he must report the game misconduct
penalty to the supervisor of officials within 48 hours after the game is
completed.  Failure to report the game misconduct could result in an
additional two game suspension.
