NHLPA statement on proposed rule changes
This from the NHLPA's statement on proposed rule changes (specifically grandfathering the mandatory use of visors for the 2013-14 NHL season) by the Competition Committee, which met earlier this week in Toronto:
"Under the proposal, players who have played less than 25 NHL regular season or playoff games in their career by the end of the 2012-13 season, would be required to wear a visor. If given the green light by the NHLPA Executive Board and the NHL Board of Governors, the grandfather visor rule would come into effect for the start of the 2013-14 NHL season. The full NHLPA/NHL Competition Committee have agreed to meet next week to develop the transition rules regarding visor use."
