NHL announces rules changes for 2019-20 season

VANCOUVER — The National Hockey League announced today a series of rule changes for the 2019-20 season which will include the use of expanded video review and enhanced player safety initiatives, as well as promoting even more offense and flow in the game.

 

The rule changes were unanimously approved by the League’s Board of Governors, NHL General Managers and the Competition Committee over the past week. NHL Hockey Operations will work on the precise Rule Book language over the coming weeks.  Following is an overview of the changes:
EXPANSION OF COACH’S CHALLENGE

 

NEW CATEGORY: In addition to Coach’s Challenge for “Off-side” and “Interference on the Goalkeeper”, a third category will allow for the Coach’s Challenge of goal calls on the ice that follow plays in the Offensive Zone that should have resulted in a play stoppage, but did not.

 

This change will allow Challenges of plays that may involve pucks that hit the spectator netting, pucks that are high-sticked to a teammate in the offensive zone, pucks that have gone out of play but are subsequently touched in the offensive zone and hand passes that precede without a play stoppage and ultimately conclude in the scoring of a goal.  Plays that entail “discretionary stoppages” (e.g. penalty calls) will not be subject to a Coach’s Challenge.

Coach’s Challenges for these types of plays (and for “Off-Side” Challenges) will only be available if the puck does not come out of the attacking zone between the time of the “missed” infraction and the time the goal is scored.

 

PENALTIES FOR UNSUCCESSFUL CHALLENGES: The number of Coach’s Challenges that can be made will no longer be limited based on the availability of a team’s time-out.  Teams will be permitted to exercise a Coach’s Challenge at any time, but with escalating “consequences” for unsuccessful Challenges. The consequences of unsuccessful Coach’s Challenges will be made consistent across all three Categories of Coach’s Challenges: (1) minor penalty for Delaying the Game on a Club’s first unsuccessful Coach’s Challenge; and (2) double minor penalty for Delaying the Game for each additional Coach’s Challenge that is unsuccessful.

 

The Situation Room in Toronto will continue to be responsible for initiating video review in the final minute of regulation time and overtime as well as continue to have final authority over all Coach’s Challenge video review decisions with input and consultation from both the On-Ice Officials and a former Official staffed in the Situation Room.

 

REFEREES REVIEW OF MAJOR/MATCH PENALTY CALLS AND DOUBLE MINOR HIGH-STICKING PENALTIES

 

MAJOR & MATCH PENALTIES: Referees will be required to conduct an on-ice video review for all Major (non-fighting) and Match Penalties they assess on the ice for the purpose of: (a) “confirming” the penalty; or (b) “reducing” the penalty to a two-minute minor penalty.  Referees shall not have the option to rescind a called penalty altogether.

 

The Referees will be provided with all available video to review their own calls but will not otherwise consult with the NHL Situation Room with respect to their review.

 

DOUBLE MINOR FOR HIGH-STICKING: Referees will have the ability to conduct an on-ice video review to confirm (or not) their original call on the ice, and, in particular, whether the stick causing the apparent injury was actually the stick of the Player being penalized.  The Referee’s review of all High-Sticking/Double-Minor Penalties will be discretionary and not mandatory and will be conducted without consultation with the NHL Situation Room.

OTHER APPROVED RULE CHANGES

 

HELMETS: Subject to further consultation with the NHL Players’ Association on precise language, a Player on the ice whose helmet comes off during play must (a) exit the playing surface, or (b) retrieve and replace his helmet properly on his head (with or without his chin strap fastened). A Player who is making a play on the puck or who is in position to make an immediate play on the puck at the time his helmet comes off, shall be given a reasonable opportunity to complete the play before either exiting the ice or retrieving and replacing his helmet. Failure to comply with the above will result in a minor penalty being assessed on the offending player. A Player who intentionally removes an opponent’s helmet during play shall be assessed a minor penalty for roughing.
LINE CHANGES FOR DEFENSIVE TEAM: The defensive team will not be permitted a line change when a goalie freezes the puck on any shot from outside the center red line. Similarly, if the actions of a skater of the defensive team cause a stoppage by unintentionally dislodging the net from its moorings, the defensive team will not be permitted to make a line change. In both of these instances, the offensive team will have the choice of which end zone dot the face-off will take place.

 

FACE-OFFS FOLLOWING AN ICING & TO BEGIN A POWER-PLAY: Following an icing as well as at the beginning of any power-play, the offensive team will have the choice of which end zone dot the face-off will take place.

 

AWARDED GOAL: If the goal post is deliberately displaced by a goalkeeper during the course of a “breakaway”, a goal will be awarded to the non-offending team.

 

PUCK OUT OF BOUNDS: When the attacking team is responsible for the puck going out of play in the attacking zone, in all instances, the face-off will be conducted at one of the two face-off dots in the attacking zone.

Goalie Roberto Luongo heads into retirement at age 40 after 19-year career with Islanders, Canucks and Panthers

June 27, 2019

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: ROBERTO LUONGO

Goaltender Roberto Luongo announced his retirement Wednesday, ending his 19-season NHL career with the second-most regular-season games played (1,044) among goaltenders and the third-most regular-season wins (489)  in NHL history. He also retires among the top 10 in regular season saves (2nd; 28,409), shutouts (9th; 77) and save percentage (t-9th; .919).

 

* Born in Quebec – just like the two goaltenders ahead of him on the all-time wins list – Luongo compiled a 489-392-124 record in 1,044 career regular-season games (2.52 GAA, .919 SV%, 77 SO) with the Florida Panthers, Vancouver Canucks and New York Islanders. He added a 34-35 mark in 70 career playoff games (2.49 GAA, .918 SV%, 5 SO) with the Canucks and Panthers.

* Luongo retires as the franchise leader in wins for both the Canucks (252) and Panthers (230) – the only goaltender in NHL history to hold the wins record for multiple clubs (min. 100 wins for each).

 

* Luongo also holds the franchise record in shutouts for the Panthers (38) and Canucks (38), making him one of three goaltenders in NHL history to lead multiple franchises in that category. Marc-Andre Fleury is the shutouts leader for the Pittsburgh Penguins (44) and Vegas Golden Knights (12), while Roy Worters set club records while playing with the now-defunct New York Americans (45) and Pittsburgh Pirates (22).

^Fleury and Worters also lead those franchises in wins, but do not meet the 100 wins threshold noted above

* Among goaltenders to make their NHL debut since 1955-56, only one netminder has more career regular-season saves than Luongo (28,409): all-time wins leader Martin Brodeur (28,928).

 

* With a resume that includes eight 30-win campaigns, Luongo is one of eight netminders with as many such seasons. His 47 victories in 2006-07 are tied for the second-most in one season in NHL history, behind 48-win campaigns by Brodeur (also 2006-07) and Braden Holtby (2015-16).
* On the international stage, Luongo captured a championship with Team Canada on five occasions: two gold medals at the Olympics (2010, 2014), two golds at the World Championship (2003, 2004) and a World Cup of Hockey title (2004). Luongo allowed two or fewer goals in four of five appearances at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, highlighted by a 34-save performance in the gold-medal game against the United States.

 

* Luongo won the William M. Jennings Trophy in 2010-11 alongside teammate Cory Schneider. In 2006-07, Luongo was a finalist for both the Hart Trophy and Vezina Trophy, finishing second in voting behind Hart winner Sidney Crosby and Vezina winner Brodeur. Luongo also was a top-three vote-getter for the Vezina in 2010-11 (w/ VAN) and in 2003-04 (w/ FLA).

CHRONICLING LUONGO’S 19-SEASON NHL JOURNEY

Roberto Luongo went fourth overall to the Islanders in the 1997 NHL Draft - behind Joe Thornton (BOS), Patrick Marleau (SJS) and Olli Jokinen(LAK) – and currently is one of six goaltenders ever selected among the top four.

 

* After being drafted by the Islanders, Luongo won back-to-back Quebec Major Junior Hockey League championships – first with the Val-d’Or Foreurs (1997-98) and then with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan (1998-99).

* Luongo made the jump to the NHL the following season, posting a 7-14-1 record over the course of 24 games (20 starts) for the Islanders in 1999-00 – the only contests he skated with New York.

 

* At age 20 on Nov. 28, 1999, Luongo made his NHL debut at the FleetCenter in Boston, making 43 saves in a 2-1 victory against the Bruins – with Islanders teammate Zdeno Chara scoring his first career game-winning goal. Luongo’s 43 saves are tied for the third-most by a goaltender winning his NHL debut.

* Less than a month after his first victory, Luongo recorded his first NHL shutout on Dec. 27, 1999 – stopping all 34 shots he faced to record another milestone against Boston. Skating with the Panthers nearly 19 years after that, on Dec. 4, 2018, Luongo again blanked the Bruins for the 77th and final shutout of his NHL career.

 

* Luongo’s last shutout came in his return from a five-game absence and propelled him ahead of Ed Belfour and Tony Esposito into sole possession of ninth place on the NHL’s all-time regular-season shutouts list.

* Luongo earned his last victory with the Islanders on April 9, 2000 against the Panthers -  a team that acquired him less than three months later at the 2000 NHL Draft in Calgary. That deal sent Luongo – along with Jokinen (the No. 3 pick in 1997) – from New York to Florida in exchange for forwards Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha.

 

* With a fresh start for a relatively new franchise – the Panthers had been in the NHL just seven seasons before Luongo’s arrival – the netminder quickly became the franchise leader in shutouts, games played by a goaltender and wins. Luongo passed John Vanbiesbrouck in each of those categories before the end of the 2005-06 season – first claiming the shutouts distinction on Feb. 6, 2003, followed by games played on Dec 7, 2005and wins on April 13, 2006. Though he departed for eight seasons, Luongo never relinquished any of those franchise records.

 

* On June 23, 2006, Luongo was traded to Vancouver in a five-player deal that sent Todd Bertuzzi to Florida. Entering the 2006-07 season with 341NHL games to his credit, Luongo posted career highs in games played (76) and wins (47) to lead the Canucks to a first-place finish in the Northwest Division – one of their six division titles in the Luongo era.

 

* Luongo reached the 30-win mark in each of his first six seasons with the Canucks (part of a seven-season streak overall) and helped Vancouver post the League’s best regular-season record in 2010-11 and 2011-12 – the only times the club has won the Presidents’ Trophy.

 

* In the playoffs, Luongo backstopped the Canucks past the first round in each of their four appearances from 2006-07 to 2010-11, culminating in a trip to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final against the Bruins.

 

* In Game 7 of the 2011 Conference Quarterfinals, Luongo posted a 31-save effort as he and the Canucks won 2-1 in overtime against the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks – a club that had eliminated them in each of the previous two years. He posted a 1.97 goals-against average and .932 save percentage over the next two rounds to defeat the Nashville Predators and San Jose Sharks, guiding Vancouver to the Final for the first time in 17 years. Luongo recorded two shutouts in the 2011 Final, but he and the Canucks ultimately lost Game 7 on home ice.

 

* After establishing Canucks franchise records for regular-season wins on Jan. 21, 2012 and shutouts on Oct. 25, 2009, Luongo was traded back to the Panthers on March 4, 2014 in a four-player deal.

 

* Back in the Florida net for the first time in eight years, Luongo posted a 25-save shutout against the Buffalo Sabres on March 7, 2014. It came 2,950 days after his last shutout with the club on Feb. 7, 2006.

 

* Over the final 255 games of his NHL career, Luongo added to his franchise records and helped the Panthers return to the playoffs in 2015-16 as the No. 1 seed in the Atlantic Division. Celebrating his 37th birthday just days before the end of that season, Luongo posted the sixth and final 35-win campaign of his career to help Florida clinch its second division title.

 

* Luongo won three of his last four career games, posting his final victory on April 1, 2019 at home against the defending Stanley Cup champion Capitals. His last NHL appearance was a 4-3 overtime loss against the Devils, at home on the final day of 2018-19 when Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov set the franchise record for points in a single season.

 

LUONGO THE LEADER

A leader in every regard, Roberto Luongo retires as the last goaltender to captain an NHL team. He wore the ‘C’ on his mask for the Canucks from 2008-09 to 2009-10, at the time making him the first netminder in 60 years to serve as captain of an NHL team - Bill Durnan was the last before him in 1947-48 with the Montreal Canadiens.

* Luongo’s leadership in the community also was brought to the forefront when he addressed the crowd at BB&T Center before a win on Feb. 22, 2018. A longtime resident of Parkland, Fla., Luongo delivered an emotional speech as the Panthers honored victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Speaking for nearly three minutes, he expressed his love for the Parkland community, called for positive action in the wake of tragedy, addressed family and friends of the victims and commended the efforts of teachers and students.

* Through his welcoming personality and lighthearted take on life in the NHL, Luongo was respected by teammates and opponents alike. After announcing his retirement in true @strombone1 style, Roberto Luongo received messages from former teammates and opposing players, including Martin Brodeur, with whom he won a gold medal at the 2010 Olympics.

* Luongo also received a congratulatory message from Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who now has the most career regular-season wins among active goaltenders (449).

* Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov also sent a heartfelt message to his former teammate.

TORONTO (June 25, 2019) – Lanny McDonald, Chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame announced today that six individuals have been elected to Hockey Hall of Fame Honoured Membership, in both the Player and Builder Category.  The vote took place today at the annual meeting of the Selection Committee in Toronto.

 

“The Hockey Hall of Fame is proud to welcome these hockey legends as Honoured Members,” said McDonald.  “Their contributions to the game of hockey are well documented and their election to the Hockey Hall of Fame is richly deserved.”

 

 

In the Builder Category, two individuals were elected.

 

Jim Rutherford was a first-round selection of the Detroit Red Wings in 1969 and after his playing career ended he embarked on a long and storied career in management.  From his start with the Windsor Spitfires in 1984, Jim went on to the General Manager post with the Hartford franchise for 20 years, winning a Stanley Cup in Carolina in 2006. He currently holds the post of GM with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he won Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017.

 

“I started my career in Beeton, 50 miles north of the Hall of Fame, never dreaming that I would once be in it,” said Rutherford.  “I’ve travelled lots of miles in hockey and met so many great people along the way.”

 

Also in the Builder Category, Jerry York was elected.  Jerry began his NCAA coaching career at Clarkson University in 1972, moving to Bowling Green in 1979.  In 15 years at Bowling Green his teams had six NCAA tournament berths, winning the title in 1984. He then moved to Boston College where he has won an additional four NCAA championships.

 

“I’m flabbergasted with this unexpected honour,” said York.  “I will cherish this special recognition.”

 

 

In the Player Category, four individuals were elected.

 

Guy Carbonneau played 13 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, winning the Selke Award as the NHL’s top defensive forward three times – in addition to Stanley Cups in 1986 and 1993.  He also played five seasons with the Dallas Stars, winning another Stanley Cup in 1999.

 

“This is an honour you think about, but it’s never a sure thing,” said Carbonneau.  “It is an incredible recognition and I thank the Selection Committee.”

 

Vaclav Nedomansky played 12 seasons professionally in Bratislava before becoming the first athlete from an Eastern European communist country to defect to North America to pursue a professional hockey career. He starred in the WHA with the Toronto Toros and Birmingham Bulls before joining the Detroit Red Wings as a 33-year-old rookie in 1977.

 

“I appreciate my accomplishments being recognized by the Hockey Hall of Fame,” said Nedomansky.  “I’m proud to be the first player from a communist country to come and play in North America.”

 

Hayley Wickenheiser has played professionally in both men’s and women’s hockey, won seven Women’s World Championship gold medals, as well as four Olympic gold medals in 21 seasons as a member of Canada’s national team.

 

Sergei Zubov joined the New York Rangers in 1992 after playing four seasons with the Moscow Red Army.  A member of the Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup team, Sergei also played 12 seasons with the Dallas Stars, winning a second Stanley Cup in 1999.

 

“Deep down in my heart I am so glad to receive this honour,” said Zubov.  “It has been my pleasure to have been involved in hockey all of my life.”
