As for hats, the average one is not 20 pounds.
Tell me where it talks about being charged, having to go to court, incurring a $500 fine and being ejected from the game. This is taken directly from the NHL.com Rules section.

63.4 Objects Thrown on the Ice In the event that objects are thrown on the ice that interfere with the progress of the game, the Referee shall blow the whistle and stop the play and the puck shall be faced-off at a face-off spot in the zone nearest to the spot where play is stopped. When objects are thrown on the ice during a stoppage in play, including after the scoring of a goal, the Referee shall have announced over the public address system that any further occurrences will result in a bench minor penalty being assessed to the home Team. Articles thrown onto the ice following a special occasion (i.e. hat trick) will not result in a bench minor penalty being assessed. Refer also to Rule 53.6 when spectator interference occurs during a breakaway.

Haha, ya. That would hurt. But that's why I think staff in the area "allowed" them to walk on up to the board before flinging. So people like you don't have to worry.
