Ice Hockey: A minor penalty that occurs when a player makes a deliberate move of more than two steps when body checking an opponent. If the other player suffers a serious injury, is decapitated or eviscerated, it is a major penalty.

Charging the goalie while the goalie is in his goal crease can result in either a minor penalty, a major penalty, or a major penalty and a game misconduct depending on the severity of the infraction.
