Sports News of the Week

This has been a very cool week in sports so the news is top-notch.

NHL= The NHL's Research and Development camp is taking place at the Mastercard Centre in Toronto. For those of you who don't know what that is it is when team officials decide over new rule changes to make the game more safe and exciting. The officials get a bonus by watching top prospects perform the rule changes. Some of the new rules may be:

1. One Touch Icing: When the other team dumps the puck without passing the centre ice redline. As soon as the puck passes the far goaline there is a whistle and icing has occurred instead of where two players race after the puck and if the defending team touches it then icing has occurred. Lots of injuries happened on those 1 on 1 battles.

2. Remove the trapezoid behind the goalie.That was pretty much useless.

3. Instead of after a 5 minute 4 on 4 overtime there is a shootout there will be a 3 on 3 overtime.

I think all of them are good ideas.


The NFL Preseason has started after the lockout and there were many interesting games with comebacks and amazing moments. Everyone is happy to have football back.


The Chinese Basketball Association has announced they will not let NBA players on contract to play on there teams but will still let free agents too. Just a cool fact.

The news this week was really cool. Hope you enjoyed it.
