The National Hockey Leagues Department of Safety continues to add value to the game by releasing educational videos that highlight both player and spectator safety and explain why referees make certain calls and judgements based on players behaviours. New videos are being unveiled on a regular basis with the aim of broadening NHL fans knowledge and giving players a graphic illustration of how specific infractions are evaluated and what legal manoeuvres are allowed.
NHL has become one of the most popular sports franchises in America and the need to educate players and fans is vital as it can avoid ugly scenes both in the crowd and on the rink. Sports’ betting is also increasingly popular and these videos can aid viewers in understanding why certain infractions are disciplined and others are let slide.

The most recently released videos by the NHL Department of Safety include the “Contact along the boards” clip and the” Charging” video, both which explain why these actions are not tolerated at certain times and what the penalties for these infractions will be. This makes it safer for both players and fans and players are also able to gauge when actions will be submitted to the board of safety for review. During the course of the season there will be several new videos released that will explain further actions and rules and allow insight into why and when action is taken.
These videos have major benefits for viewers who do not always follow the referee’s calls and the fast pace of the game. The decisions are often made in a split second and these videos aim to simplify the rules of the game by reviewing different scenarios and their outcomes. Often the key components of actions such as charging are blurred so the videos benefit the players in reviewing how their actions are accounted for and what is deemed acceptable or not. By understanding the chemistry of the game it is easier for both players and fans to know what is legal in a contact sport that has an incredibly fast pace and brutal game play.
