Same, just saw it on BR, so it's as good as unconfirmed. Edit: NHL app just confirmed.

That's why I came to the site just now. That NHL app is awful. They give you the little blurb, then you click it and go to the home page instead of the actual article the blurb was about. Where's the damn article? So instead, I come here and find out the news, lol.

Watch for an increased number of goalie and D mis-communications resulting in goals. Bryce said he was against it at the BBQ as was Lou. Oh well. I would have lost a bunch of money betting on it being voted down by the PA.

more braindead lunacy from a league run by the braindead. All this does is break up the flow of the game.Too many controversial judgement calls. This kills loose puck battles. Barely anybody gets injured in these situations anyway. It's hardly an epidemic.

 there are two judgments required for "icing the puck". The Linesman must first determine that the puck will cross the goal line. Once the Linesman determines that the puck will cross the goal line, icing is completed upon the determination as to which player (attacking or defending) would first touch the puck.

 

Ugh, so much easier to have kept the same rule regarding who actually touched the puck after it crossed the line & to have just painted an actual line on the ice !


and that same line could've been painted  straight across the faceoff dot, and then also been used to make sure players  are on-side for each faceoff...

I guess the thought process is that if this new icing prevents even one of these types of situations:

 

it's worth it.  It'll definitely lead to some controversial situations though.

How is anyone complaining about this? This is what the teams and players want. It is a protection issue as the video above shows the dangers of it.

 

It's a non issue as far as flow. Just different at first.

Aside from all the confusion it will initially cause, it allows the D to plaster the forwards for a change,wait to a top 6 is lost.

Agreed, I'm surprised to see people so up in arms about this.  They were using it throughout preseason and it had no effect on the speed or flow of the game.  I am a little concerned with how quickly the linesmen have to make the judgment call though, maybe no-touch icing would be better as long as they could wave it off when the forward is clearly going to be the first to the puck.

Except in the above video, had hybrid-icing been a rule, it would not have been invoked. The referee only blows his whistle when he can clearly determine that the defending player would reach the puck first. When the referee is unable to clearly determine, like in the situation above where both players were separated by mere inches, the play is not blown dead. The result is the invocation of the rule when the likelihood of a collision is incredibly miniscule, because both players are far apart, and no invocation of the rule when the likelihood of a collision and subsequent injury are greatest, because both players are indeterminately tied. Thus, using the above video as a visual impetus to launch a campaign for hybrid icing is, at least to me, inaccurately and illogically foolish.

I'm not complaining about the purpose of the rule, just the "imaginary line" part of it, which makes it a double-judgement call instead of an absolute call of who touched it after the actual line.

I don't see any benefit from this. Like leeski said, dangerous plays like the Pitkanen video above would play out the exact same way since the players would be close enough that the refs would opt to allow the footrace rather than blow it dead.

 

Am I missing something?

Anytime you give more power or influence to the referee the worse it is, it upsets me that they're changing a rule when injuries caused by races for the puck were hardly an epidemic.
