Report: New offsides rule

While you watch hockey this season, it might help you to be aware of a new offsides rule that can come into play. For the past few years, we’ve seen teams challenge that a play was offsides, which has wiped out goals. 

Now, when a team has an unsuccessful offsides challenge, they will be awarded a two-minute penalty. 

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported the new infraction:

“Can you imagine a team in a tight game giving up a goal it thought was offside, losing the challenge, then having to withstand an immediate power-play opportunity? It’s going to make bench bosses much more wary.” – Friedman
