Why was the stick illegal in the 12/14 st louis blues vs colorado hocky game?
Parayko has a stick that is longer than is normally legal, and has an exemption to be allowed to use it because of his height. When Tarasenko picked up Parayko's stick, he was playing with an illegal stick since he doesn't have the same exemption.
Stick in question was illegal for him (Tarasenko) to use. Is it fair ? That's up for you to think about.

Tarasenko picked up a stick that was specifically made for players 6'6" and taller (since he's not that tall he can't use it). By playing the puck with it, he got a minor penalty.
