Best Answer

If a player is in the defensive end, gloving the puck to a teammate is allowed.

If a player makes hand contact with the puck in the neutral or offensive zones and a teammate touches it next, a hand pass will be called and play is blown dead.

Should a player close his hand on the puck, a two minute minor penalty for Delay Of Game will be assessed.

Doing so in the goal crease by a player, other than the goalie, results in a penalty shot for the non-offending team.

Newton's First Law: The hockey puck glides in a straight line unless acted upon by an outside force, such as a hockey stick.Newton's Second Law: The acceleration of the puck when hit by a hockey stick is directly proportional to the force, and inversely proportional to its mass. The harder the puck is hit, the faster its acceleration. a = F/mNewton's Third Law: When the puck is hit by a hockey stick, it exerts an equal but opposite force on the hockey stick. If the hockey stick hits the puck to the right, the puck will push back against the hockey stick to the left.
