New rule changes for IIHF tournaments

Overview: The major rule changes for 2010-2014

Elbow pads must have a soft protective outer covering of sponge rubber or similar material of at least 1.27 cm (half an inch) thickness.
After a penalty has been called, the ensuing faceoff will be in the defending zone of the penalized team.
No line change allowed after a team ices the puck.
Face-offs can only be executed on the nine face-off spots. There are no more imaginary lines.
The imaginary zone where players (including goalkeepers) can be changed on the fly is limited by the length of the respective player bench plus 1.5 metres from the boards.
A goalkeeper cannot play with a broken stick.
If a penalty shot is awarded, the fouled player is awarded the shot.
If a player loses his helmet during game action, the player must go to the bench. For his own safety, he’s not allowed to readjust the helmet and continue playing.
When there is a delayed penalty called against a team already playing shorthanded – and a goal is scored during the delayed penalty – the first penalty is terminated, but the delayed penalty is assessed.
The time on the clock for all regulation and all overtime periods counts down.
A check or blow with any part of the body or equipment to the head and neck area of an opposing player or driving or forcing the head of an opposing player into the boards shall be assessed at least with a minor and an automatic misconduct penalty (“2+10”) and up to a match penalty.
The ‘lacrosse-like’ move whereby the puck is picked up on the blade of the stick and ‘whipped’ into the net shall be permitted provided the puck is not raised above the height of the shoulders at any time and when released, is not carried higher than the height of the crossbar.

Well your commentary starts off a little incorrectly as the rules are becoming more and more similar. NHL is moving to no-touch icing sooner or later and I'd assume the softer elbow pads as well. The helmet rule is a bit iffy though.
