Missed Game Stoppage

Missed Game Stoppage

A situation where game officials, such as referees and linesmen, fail to notice or properly enforce a rule violation or an incident that should have resulted in a stoppage of play but did not. These missed stoppages can occur for various reasons, including human error, obstructed views, or players’ actions. Missed game stoppages can have a significant impact on the outcome of a hockey game. They can lead to disputed goals, missed penalties, or injuries that could have been prevented with timely stoppages. While game officials strive to maintain a fair and safe playing environment, human error can occasionally result in missed stoppages.
