The National Hockey League will not review high-sticking penalties this season, contrary to a recommendation brought forward in the spring, as reported by Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press.
In June, the league’s competition committee recommended that all high-sticking double minor penalties be subject to a video review. That will not be happening, however.
“We just don’t want to do something that we weren’t totally comfortable with on video review,” NHL executive vice-president and director of hockey operations Colin Campbell told The Canadian Press.
“We want everything to be clear and precise and we didn’t think that was.”
