The NHL announced a series of rule changes for the 2014-15 season, including making a spin-o-rama move in the shootout illegal.
Included in the rule changes is:
- the trapezoid will be expanded by two feet from the goal post on both sides of the net
- fines will be assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale for penalties associated with Rule 64.3 (Diving/Embellishment)
- teams will switch ends prior to the start of overtime in the regular season, and the procedure requiring the head coach to submit a list of the first three shooters in the shoot-out has been eliminated
