If a penalty shot is called and the ensuing penalty stroke results in a goal, the penalty to the player will be waived unless it is a major penalty. Violent play on an offensive player by a defensive player in his or her own penalty area, regardless of the location of the ball, will always result in a penalty shot for the offensive team. In situations where offensive and defensive player(s) initiate an altercation resulting in simultaneously penalties, the penalties will be considered offsetting and no penalty shot will be awarded.
