Best Answer

It all depends on the penalty. In minor hockey If a player receives a 5 minute major, they are automatically ejected from the game, and someone else will serve that 5 minutes. You can get a M21 which is a 10 minute penalty for harassment of the official. So a major penalty could be 5 minutes or it could be 10. -David
