NHL to talk goal review protocol at GM meetings

Elliotte Friedman discusses Andrew Hammond’s contract talk with the Ottawa Senators, the return of Tyler Seguin and the possibility of an Olympics hockey meeting happening soon.

Video review on goaltender interference is something that will be discussed at the upcoming NHL general managers meetings, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

On Tuesday, during the Flames’ win over the Flyers, a controversial no-goal from Nick Schultz was the topic of much debate.

Watch the play HERE.

The referees and linesmen huddled and discussed the play, but it was not reviewable so they weren’t able to watch the play on a monitor. Friedman says it’s possible the NHL will discuss putting a monitor in the penalty box so officials can quickly review certain plays to get calls correct – similar to what NBA officials can do with courtside monitors.

Three-on-three overtime and emergency goalie protocols will also be discussed at the next GM meetings, which take place from March 16-18 in Boca Raton, Fla.
