Girls High School Hockey
Details coming soon
PIHL's equipment rules, especially the requirement to wear throat guards (also known as "neck guards").
The PIHL is alerting all teams and players that throat guard enforcement will be re-emphasized going forward, and that the teams and players are primarily responsible for ensuring that all players are properly and safely equipped. Specifically, the coaches are being advised that enforcement of the throat guard rule should not be used as an opportunity to criticize the officials for other calls during the game. If, however, a player makes it onto the ice and he/she is not wearing proper equipment, we as officials are expected to enforce the League rules.

Drake continues to elevate his game every week and is a fierce competitor. He was selected as the team’s captain for the season and has led the team both on the ice and in the locker room. Currently he has helped the team on a five game win streak against some of the top competition in the division.
