Mighty Ducks, The - Penalty Shot
In the championship game Adam Banks is on a breakaway and gets cross-checked from behind. According to the rules of hockey he should have been awarded a penalty shot. They don't give it to him. But later in the movie Charlie is hooked from behind and awarded a penalty shot. Then when he is taking his the shot he doesn't have a helmet on. According to the rules of hockey a player should have a helmet on at all times except when it falls off during game play. SO the producers screwed up on both penalty shots.
Special Requirements:

A penalty shot was not awarded on Adam Banks' breakaway because he had scored a goal. If he had not scored then a penalty shot would have been awarded.

Also, in minor hockey a player who's helmet falls off and he/she continues to play is also subject to a penalty, regardless of whether or not it was their fault that their helmet came off.

There was actually a third penalty shot "situation", I say it that way because it was possible for the Ducks to get a penalty shot after Adam's breakaway. This was Gordon's breakaway when he played pee-wee. By talking about "both penalty shots" you exclude this one.

In Hockey, during a penalty shot, it is not necessary for a player to have his helmet on. it is encouraged, yet allowed not to.
