NHL goaltenders better not get used to their current uniforms.
According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, there was lots of conversation at the last competition committee meeting about cutting down the size of jerseys and pants for goaltenders.
A change could be made after next season.
“Don’t be surprised if in 2016-17 the (NHL) and the Players’ Association try to work together to cut those down so it’s only for protection and not stopping the puck,” Friedman said Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada.
The reduction of the size of jerseys and pants is one of many discussion points among league circles in order to ensure that goal scoring does not become an issue across the NHL.
