GMs endorse hybrid icing, visors for incoming players

BOSTON (AP) - NHL general managers have embraced many changes recommended by the competition committee, including hybrid icing and the mandatory use of visors for all players entering the league. The group met Wednesday before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals. A blend of touch and no-touch icing that offers referees the discretion to blow a play dead will be in effect during the upcoming preseason. If the experiment is successful, hybrid icing will be implemented for the regular season, pending a vote by the league's board of governors.
