Das Originalurteil:
Cameron Schilling of EC Red Bull Salzburg has been suspended for one game for an illegal check to the head or neck (IIHF rule 48) and fined 200.00 euros. The incident occurred in the fourth semifinal at HCB Südtirol Alperia on Tuesday, March 16.

Cameron Schilling (#8) of EC Red Bull Salzburg, time 38:28 was involved in an incident deemed as Illegal Check to the Head or Neck (IIHF Rule 48). The video evidence was sent to the win2day ICE Hockey League PSC, which determined the incident to be worthy of supplementary discipline – Category 1 – ‚Careless‘.

Tuesday night in Bozen, Salzburg D’Man #8 Cameron Schilling was involved in an incident deemed as a Check to the Head by the on ice officials on Bozen D’Man #62 Joshua Teves resulting in a 5-minute major penalty plus game-misconduct being assessed.

As the video shows, after a turnover near the blue line, Teves gains puck possession and immediately releases the puck. At the same time Teves is gaining and releasing the puck, Schilling steps up from his D’Zone to make a check. As he does so, the hit is delivered with elevation and through the hit, arm extension, making the head a significant point of contact, on a hit where such head contact was avoidable.

This is an illegal check to the head

It is important to note, that both elements of the illegal CTH rule are met. First, the head is the main point of contact of that hit, as Schilling’s shoulder and arm make direct and forceful contact with the opponents head. Second, the head contact on this play is avoidable. We acknowledge that Teves is bent over and low on this play, but he is in an effort to play the puck and did not materially change the position of his head or body in a way that contributes to the head receiving contact. Schilling chooses to elevate and extend through contact which causes contact with the head. If Schilling wishes to deliver this check legally, he must stay low and keep the arm tucked to make contact through the opponents core, rather than the head.

The ICE Hockey League Department of Player Safety has suspended Cameron Schilling for 1 game and fined 200.00 euros.

To summarize:

This is a Check to the Head
Direct head contact
Not a repeat offender
