BREAKING: NHL announces rule change - MANDATORY for new NHL players

One thing that the National Hockey League truly cares about is making the game safer for their players.

In the last few years, unless a player had been in the league for awhile, they made it mandatory for all players to wear visors on their helmets.

Today they announced another rule change, they are making it mandatory for all players who entered the league in 2019 or after to wear helmets during warm ups.

NHL Insider Chris Johnston shared this information about it:


As reported tonight on @TSNHockey "Insider Trading," the NHL is making it mandatory for future players to wear a helmet in pre-game warmups.

The rule applies to those who entered the league in 2019-20 or later. Players who reached the NHL before then are exempt.

The mandate applies to someone like Cole Caufield, for example. The #habs forward memorably took his solo lap without a bucket before making his NHL debut in April 2021.



This hasn't really been a reported problem around the league besides on a few occasions, but if it makes things safer for our players, I dont see an issue with the change.
