Has anybody found out if their minor hockey will follow suit. Esspecially with cut down obstruction? There was a lot of that in my league last year. One thing I don't want is the shootout. Kids will spend 90% of their practise time on breakaways instead of 60%. How useless, I mean really howmany breakaways do you get a year!

Our leage is still playing by USA Hockey rules, but since we play on the same ice that the Lightning practice on, we'll get the new lines.

USA Hockey and Hockey Canada have their own rulebooks, which have always differed greatly from NHL rules. That will not change.

I doubt any rule changes will be made to match the NHL.

In my experience, Canadian minor hockey has always aimed to call obstruction the way it's written in the book, so it's more of a case of the NHL becoming more like minor hockey than the other way around.
