The National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety on Friday unveiled its "Charging" video, the latest in a series of educational videos designed to help players and fans better understand how specific infractions are viewed and evaluated, what is legal and what merits the assessment of Supplemental Discipline.

This latest video takes viewers through the dynamics of determining the issues involving charging incidents which can merit the possibility of Supplemental Discipline. It provides several examples and explains the key components that must be present for a charging infraction to rise to the level of review by the Department of Player Safety.
