National Briefing / And Finally . . .

Exhibition game? No, exhibitionist

October 28, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An Idaho hockey team was suspended from a city ice rink after players engaged in a game of "strip hockey" -- shedding a piece of uniform every time a practice shot missed its mark.

As redress for last Wednesday's incident, Boise banished the Idaho Junior Steelheads team from Idaho Ice World for four days.

One 17-year-old player who shed his underwear was suspended until next week. Police are investigating whether public decency laws were violated, a spokeswoman said.

An adult whose daughter was on an adjacent rink called a city hotline to complain.

Doug Holloway, Boise's recreation superintendent, says rink employees told him the shootout drill went like this: "If they missed a shot, they had to take off a glove. If they missed another, they had to take off another glove. And so on, and so forth."
