A note for all P1 players this year - At the request of P1 coaches, WHA will implement a 2 minute penalty for Green Cards. Here is the content from WHA -
"As requested by a number of P1 coaches, for P1 Open Grade competition in 2012, we will be running the 2 minute green cards (as occurs at NHL and Internationally).  ...... personnel will work the sidelines and time the green cards (2 minutes start the moment the player is on the assigned chair on the sideline - so if players dawdle, they will be longer off the pitch).  They will also time any yellow cards so that players can get back onto the pitch as soon as time is up, rather than waiting for a break in play for the umpire to bring them back on."
