NHL GMs Endorse Mandatory Visors, Other On-Ice Recommendations

NHL GMs yesterday endorsed several changes recommended by the league's competition committee, "including making visors mandatory for new NHL players starting next season." The GMs "also like the idea of hybrid icing, which is expected to be introduced in preseason games next season and could be implemented during the regular season." Other "tweaks to the game" endorsed by GMs include "making the nets 4 inches shallower and eliminating the 'attainable pass' call for linesmen" (ESPN.com, 6/19).
