I would call this the soccer rule. (as in no body contact).

 

The first "offence" is not even a penalty IMHO. Besides, no new rule is required at all if you just let the refs call penalties as they see them. The infraction in the first replay would be, at most 2 minutes for interference, (a penalty which is already in the book). The second offence could be given as 4 minutes for interference again, using a rule which already exists and can already be called by a competent referee. I would also assess the "victim" with a two minute diving penalty.

Creating a new rule will result in a rash of unnecessary, exaggerated calls.  

 

Edit: one of the biggest issues I have with this kind of micromanagement, is that there is absolutely no onus on the players with the puck to "keep their head up". Come on, IIHF this is hockey - or it's supposed to be.

 

Leave well enough alone......😟
