This happened in the PCHA in
In the PCHA the blue lines are added to the ice and forward passing is allowed between the blue lines.
This season marked the introduction of the blue lines used in today's official ice hockey rinks. The league sub-divided the rink into three zones of 67 feet (20 m), allowing forward passing in the centre zone. This change was at the instigation of the Patrick brothers.[
The NHL wouldn't adopt this rule until
(Forward passing in the offensive zone was allowed in 1929-30 as most of us know).
This is the most famous of the PCHA rules created to increase the speed of the game, but it isn't the only one.
