NHL Players Approve Hybrid Icing

The NHL is instituting hybrid icing for the regular season. The NHL Players Association voted in favor of the rule after a trial basis during the preseason.

The linesman can whistle icing if the defending player is clearly ahead of the attacking player in pursuit of the puck.
