The American Hockey League will be making some minor changes to its rule book for the 2016-17 season. The modifications, which look to decrease fighting and eliminate timeouts after icing, were agreed upon at the AHL’s Board of Governors’ annual meeting, held at Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has added nine new officials to its staff. The four referees and linesmen were promoted from Hockey Quebec’s Programme Provincial des Officiels Élites (PPOE). They’ll join the league for the 2016-17 season.
