  • Incident with 10-year-old may mean rule change - Sportsnet.ca
    1984 17 year old goaltender Dean Shaw had two fingers sliced off and reattached when he lost his glove during a similar scramble in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League Right now there is no rule in place that addresses this situation Hockey Canada media spokesperson Francis Dupont told Sportsnet when we reached out to Todd Anderson Hockey Canada s senior officiating manager There are some competition issues in bringing in a regulation like this and we need to factor those in but the safety of our participants is of paramount importance to us We thank the family of making us aware of the potential for injury surrounding a circumstance like this and hope they will work with their local governing body to bring forward a playing rule change motion that can be considered by Hockey Canada within the confines of our bylaws Coincidentally there is an NHL connection here Jon Elkin the Arizona Coyotes new goaltending coach actually taught Kai this summer at goalie camp Now Elkin s main responsibility is improving the play of Mike Smith who memorably lost his glove thanks to Dustin Brown during a 2012 playoff game versus the Los Angeles Kings Sorry this video is not available in your country region Out of curiosity we asked the NHL how it would handle a situation like Kai s A referee in his judgement can stop play if a goalkeeper loses his blocker or catching glove if there is NO immediate and impending scoring opportunity Don Van Massenhoven writes Rule 9 6 only refers to the goaltenders helmet visor mask but we have always used common sense in protecting the goaltender from any potential injury so once any scoring chance is completed or gone the play can would be stopped We can understand why a paid adult and one capable of sneakily popping the net off to get a whistle can endure that risk For a 10 year old kid however it sounds like the rule book needs to make up for the failures of common sense I have a gut feeling this rule will be changed really quickly says John who is now proposing a rule change via the Highlanders to the Ontario Minor Hockey Association It s too big of a liability issue video courtesy of Jason Playter 2Fhockey 2Fjuniors 2Fgoaltender loses glove 10 year old no whistle hockey canada rule change nhl mike smith kai bryja owen sound 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS Has Marc Andre Fleury been great or lucky 45 minutes ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 3 hours ago Too early to talk about a comeback for Carey Price 4 hours ago Naked Eye vs Nerdy Guy Should Luca Sbisa be in Canucks top 6 3 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 6 hours ago Hockey Central No need to rush Nylander 1 34 4 hours ago Weekend Takeaways Reimer becoming a valuable asset 7 hours ago A history of NHL goals from the

  • Should the Winnipeg Jets re-sign Dustin Byfuglien? - Sportsnet.ca
    there than they do with Byfuglien at the bench There is however a counterargument Because defencemen even offensive ones like Byfuglien have more impact preventing scoring chances than they do driving them it s worth considering how often chances occur when an individual defenceman is on the ice Here s how Byfuglien compares to his most regular teammates over the last five seasons Byfuglien lands comfortably in the top four in four of these five seasons which given the amount of offence he generates and the fact he generally sees tougher than average opponents there s a reason Adam Pardy looks so good here really isn t bad The exception is the 2012 13 lockout shortened season which is the same year that it was reported in Winnipeg that the defenceman s weight was over 300 pounds it s probably reasonable to view that as an aberration albeit a concerning one On the whole though we can be comfortable that Byfuglien is a quality player in the here and now He s great offensively he s reasonably good defensively and he can play against anyone The question is How much longer we can expect him to play at this level Most aging curves show that players hit their peak years around age 25 However there s some debate about whether defencemen fit that pattern to the same degree that forwards do It s hard to measure defencemen by scoring rates and conventional wisdom suggests otherwise With that in mind I went looking for players who like Byfuglien had played at least 1 500 minutes of ice time in their age 29 season and who had also scored at about the same rate as he had Then I looked at when those players last did three things a played at least 1 500 minutes b averaged at least 0 45 points game and c left the league entirely Here s what I found Nine of 14 players were still logging heavy minutes six years after their age 29 season Nine of 14 were also still scoring at a roughly a 40 point pace six seasons down the line All but one was still in the league at the age of 35 Looking at the list most of the early dropouts aren t players like Byfuglien but rather smaller finesse defencemen Presumably Byfuglien s size makes it more likely that he ll stand up to the rigours of the league and will allow him to contribute in other ways if his scoring and or speed decline Byfuglien s a good player Good defencemen as a rule have staying power It s probable that even five years out a big contract for Byfuglien will be warranted Given that Winnipeg is probably best served by locking him down with a long term contract 2Fhockey 2Fnhl 2Fshould the winnipeg jets re sign dustin byfuglien 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS Has Marc Andre Fleury been great or lucky 47 minutes ago The time Michael Jordan
