The National Hockey League has joined other major sports leagues by drafting a social media policy for the upcoming 2011-12 season.

Highlights of the policy include a social media blackout window before, during and after games, as well as during practice and any other team obligations. Any use of social media applications such as Twitter or Facebook in violation of these rules may be subject to an undisclosed punishment.

Both the National Football League and National Basketball Association have had policies in place that restrict the use of social media on game days for more than two years, while Major League Baseball has had some rules in place for almost as long.

Though the NHL is far behind others in implementation, the league has been keen to create social media rules for some time. Without a league-wide policy, many individual teams have already taken matters into their own hands.
