The NHL defines a distinct kicking motion as when “an attacking player has deliberately propelled the puck with a kick of his foot or skate and the puck subsequently enters the net.”
It doesn’t matter if Coleman lifted his foot off the ice or not, he admitted to adjusting the position of his foot to propel into the net.You're not allowed to move your foot/leg forward to assist it in, that's never been allowed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W69AioXRVuI
Watch the angle @ 10seconds. That's a kicking motion
this is not true. There's ton of examples that allowed goals directed in, that's why players believe it's allowed as long as they're not kicking it in like soccer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlysl0mHAC0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpHUZfU4-b4
by ur logic, none of these goals should've counted when the puck hits the skates because 99% of the time it's going to propel the puck into the net no matter what.
@10 seconds he keeps his foot stuck out so that the puck hits his skates and guides it into the net that is already going in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-GB_wehG4o
this is a clear example of a distinct kicking motion. You rarely see professional hockey players try to score a goal this way, because they know that it's literally distinctive kicking motion to score a goal that will be 200% disallowed lol. However, with these joke refs and league inconsistent calls, they should take the chance and start doing it for the lolzThis post was edited by Secksii on May 27 2022 08:28pm
