NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has announced some NHL rule changes for the 2019-2020 season. According to him, there will now be 3 categories of video challenges now. The first two will stay the same, for the goaltender interference and the offside. The new one will be about missed calls in the offensive zone that lead to goals. Now, the hand passes or pucks hitting the netting will not be allowed for legal goals. With all of these new rules, it’s shaping up to be an interesting season!
