Ice hockey has quite a reputation as an aggressive sport and you'd be forgiven for thinking that more punches are thrown on a rink than in a boxing ring.
Fighting (or 'roughing') is subject to the most severe penalties, depending on who started the fight - a player who starts 'fisticuffs' is often dealt with more harshly than someone retaliating to another player's punches.

 Talk:Ice hockey   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
In hockey requirements that all players wear helmets have led to increases in spinal and eye injuries, as players, thinking that they are better protected, no longer avoid hitting other players head first into the boards and carry the blades of their sticks up around their heads.
Whether it actually is a release is questionable, but compare hockey to baseball, where fighting is not condoned but you end up with beanball contests and eventually with mass brawls in which the players do not pair off but gang up on single players.
I was trying to construct a rink diagram for ice hockey, similar to my work on field hockey, basketball and several other sports.

 Penalty (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A penalty in ice hockey is a punishment for inappropriate behavior, or the inappropriate behavior itself (whether called or not).
For infractions that are too minor to deserve a penalty such as icing, hand passes, and offsides, the team is penalized by a faceoff closer to their end, but this is not a penalty under the rules of hockey.
Hockey players that opt to inflict a penalty despite the punishment, do so in order to degrade the opposing team's morale or momentum, or boost their own.
