New Rules to Throw Out by December

It may not seem like it, but the NHL regular season actually started this weekend in Prague and Stockholm. The better news is that the Sabres have finished preseason, and real, genuine hockey starts on Friday.

To celebrate that, we thought it would be nice to get some housecleaning out of the way and address the new rules for this year. Enjoy.

Got it? With that in mind, get ready for a whole mess of hockey this week. The boys are back. Finally.
