Four new rules have been passed and will be included in the NHL rulebook for the upcoming season, the NHL announced today.

The NHL decides what new rules to add to the rule book for the upcoming season around this time each year. It was reported today that the league has decided to make four adjustments for the upcoming season. The game's numerous components will be impacted by these modifications.
The following list was disclosed by Eric Engles today on his X account.
1.Expansion of coach's challenge for puck-over-glass (only to challenge a called penalty, not to put one on the board).

2.Attacking players now get warned instead of removed from face off following an icing call.

3.Inadvertently knocking the net off rule (64.A iv)will now also apply to goalies (if they or anyone on the team does it, attacking team gets to choose face off location in o-zone and defending team can't change).

4.Rule 75.3 instituted for unsportsmanlike conduct-offending team will be first warned (and then penalized if they didn't heed the warning) for players hanging over the boards prior to a line change.

While, none of these rules will likely have a big impact on the overall game. It is nice to see the refinement of the rules as the league looks to grow further.
