The NHL is rolling out a new line of puck-handling equipment to help protect its players from injury.
The new lines will be called the “Razor and Tie” line.
The NHL says the line will help players stay in the game longer by preventing them from getting injured.
They’re being marketed to players who have injuries, including high-level prospects like Connor McDavid, Connor McAdam, and Patrik Laine.
“We know the players in the league are trying to get back to their game,” said NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly.
“But we know that they’re trying to do it with better equipment and protection, so they want to be able to play more, and we want to make sure that we’re providing them with the best possible equipment.”
The NHL’s line of hockey equipment will include a pair of protective gloves that will keep the puck from slipping through the glove’s openings.
The gloves are being developed by the NHLPA, which is trying to reduce concussions among the league’s players.
They will be worn during games and during practice.
The lines also include an “Ride the Bus” line that will allow players to travel in the same way they would while skating on the ice.
The new line is designed to prevent players from slipping and falling off the ice during play.
It’s part of the league-wide effort to make it safer for players to play.
“It’s something that I think everybody would agree, whether you’re a player or an organization, is a huge benefit to the game,” Daly said.
“The best players are playing at the top level, and the best players will continue to be the best athletes because they’ve got a lot of respect for each other.”
The league says it’s not replacing the old puck-handle protection.
It just improves it.
