The NHL announced Thursday that it has suspended the use of the Bauer Hockey Stick during hockey games for at least two weeks.
The NHL said the suspension was imposed because of reports that some fans may have touched the sticks during the recent NHL All-Star Game, which was held in Florida.
Bauer Hockey Stick is a hockey stick that can be used by the player to indicate puck movement.
In the past, some players have used it to mark a puck and other players have worn it on their jerseys.
The suspensions come as the NHL continues to deal with an unprecedented number of injuries, including a rash of concussions among players.
Last week, the NHL suspended the teams in the Eastern Conference, with two teams facing the league’s postseason ban.
Last year, the league suspended all teams in its regular season.
The league also announced a number of changes that will take effect on Thursday, including the use by all teams of the new No-Fishing Zone, which will be installed in each team’s locker room on Wednesday and be accessible by all players and staff.
The use of any other stick or object during a hockey game is also a violation.
