A defender committing an indirect free kick offense would do it.

Indirect free kicks are not promoted to penalty kicks when inside the penalty area.

There are 8 offenses that can result in an indirect free kick:

  • goal keeper controls the ball with his hands for more than six seconds before releasing it from his possession
  • goal keeper touches the ball again with his hands after he has released it from his possession and before it has touched another player
  • goal keeper touches the ball with his hands after it has been deliberately kicked to him by a team-mate
  • goal keeper touches the ball with his hands after he has received it directly from a throw-in taken by a team-mate
  • plays in a dangerous manner
  • impedes the progress of an opponent
  • prevents the goal keeper from releasing the ball from his hands
  • commits any other offense for which play is stopped to caution or send off a player

Can a football player hit the kicker during a punt after the ball has been kicked and the kicker is still in the air?

No, this would be considered a roughing the punter penalty and the punting team would be awarded a 15 yard penalty and a first down. The only exception to this would be if the referee ruled that the player that hit the punter made contact because of being blocked by a member of the punting team. In this case, the referee will not call the penalty.

In hockey if a team scores with a delayed penalty do they still go on the power play?

The power play technically begins the moment the referee signals the penalty, and the non-penalized team has the option to pull its goalie for an extra attacker. If the non-offending team scores during a delayed penalty call, a 2 minute minor penalty is not assessed. If the penalty is a double minor, or a second penalty is to be assessed during the delayed call, the previous penalty is negated upon a goal scored and the second penalty is then enforced.
