To Tuck Or Not To Tuck?
The NHL says no to tucking, what are we talking about? well it’s like this. Some players like to tuck their sweater or jersey into their pants while others don’t but because of a rule set by the NHL they will no longer have the luxury of deciding if they want to tuck or don’t want to tuck.

Wilkes-Barre Scranton - September 19, 2013 - The NHL says no to tucking, what are we talking about? well it’s like this. Some players like to tuck their sweater or jersey into their pants while others don’t but because of a rule set by the NHL they will no longer have the luxury of deciding if they want to tuck or don’t want to tuck.

The rule says:

Players are not permitted to tuck their jersey into their pants in such a manner where the top padding of the pant and/or additional body protection (affixed to the pant or affixed to the Player’s body) is exposed outside the jersey. The back uniform number must not be covered or obstructed in any fashion by protruding pads or other protective padding.”

From what we have read it goes like this for offenders, Players will get a warning first from the referee, then a two-minute penalty if caught again. A 10-minute misconduct and game misconduct are in the cards if said player fails to adhere to the officials’ warnings.

How do you feel about this latest rule set into play for the 2013-2014 season leave a comment and tell us what you think.
