With a new deal possibly just days away, rumors are starting to surface about how else the NHL will be different when it returns.
New Rules for the NHL. According to Tim Panaccio in today’s Inquirer those rules will include:
- The red line will not be used to determine two-line passes.
- In overtime, teams will play four-on-four, followed by three-on-three, and then a shoot-out.
- There will be no ties; standings will show wins, losses, overtime losses and shoot-out losses.
- Tag-up offside.
- No-touch icing.
- The size of the goalie equipment will be drastically reduced.
