National Hockey League general managers are not interested in a penalty for head checking.

The topic was discussed again today in Pittsburgh and the majority of the leagues 30 gm's agreed there is no reason to change or add to the rule book.

Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior executive vice president of hockey operations made a presentation outlining illegal late hits and hits to the head and opened the meeting for discussion on whether a refined standard for discipline was required.

It's not, according to the managers, with a clear message delivered they would like to continue calling the game the way it is called now.

Although this group has a strong voice, over 70% of NHL players surveyed disagree and will argue the need for a penalty for head checking at a competition committee meeting this summer.
