All these years and EA doesn't know the rules.

http://www.nhl.com/nhl/en/v3/ext/rules/2018-2019-NHL-rulebook.pdf

Rule 63. If it doesn't go over the glass - ie the bench area. It is NOT delay of game.
You might want to share this nugget with the developers!

    Isn't it only not a penalty, if it goes into the bench at a lower height than the glass? I always thought if it was higher than the glass and went over the bench, it was a penalty.

    I don't get penalties for shooting into the bench. Only if I dump it, and it goes over the bench higher than the glass. Lower than the glass, no penalty, which is how I understand the rule to work.
  • I’ve shot the puck into the bench many times and never got a penalty

    They haven't known the rules way back in NHL 14. ..
    1 When opponet takes the net off on purpose,the faceoff should be outside the zone, not in my zone.
    2 Grabbing a player without the puck so he can'not join the play is INTERFERNECE.
    Two of the things that stood out to me. So yes I agree,EA doesn't seem to know the rules,it's by design so the little 12 year olds can cheat!.

    This is somehow an icing despite the goalie coming out of the net. If you know the rules about icing, if a goalie comes out, the icing gets waved off.

    I’ve made a thread a while back about how bad icing calls are with now deleted clips.

    Beta was better. LOL. Nice touch.

    No lies detected.
  • EA still makes mistakes with the icing rules as well as the faceoff positions after intentional offsides to prevent icings.
  • How is about the 9 or10 games ELC rules ? Why they are not in the game for Rookies ?
