    What is a match penalty

    I've seen it called a bunch of times but do not know exactly how you get one, or how it is served.  Anyone?

    A match penalty is a major penalty given for Intent to Injure.  It comes with an automatic suspension until it is reviewed by the NHL.

    21.1 Match Penalty - A match penalty involves the suspension of a player
    for the balance of the game and the offender shall be ordered to the
    dressing room immediately.
    A match penalty shall be imposed on any player who deliberately
    attempts to injure or who deliberately injures an opponent in any
    manner.
    21.2 Short-handed - A substitute player is permitted to replace the
    penalized player after five (5) minutes playing time has elapsed.
    The match penalty, plus any additional penalties, shall be served
    by a player (excluding a goalkeeper) to be designated by the Manager
    or Coach of the offending team through the playing Captain, such
    player to take his place in the penalty box immediately.
    For all match penalties, regardless of when imposed, or prescribed
    additional penalties, a total of ten minutes shall be charged in the
    records against the offending player.
    In addition to the match penalty, the player shall be automatically
    suspended from further competition until the Commissioner has ruled
    on the issue. See also Rule 28 – Supplementary Discipline.
