NHLN-US to broadcast 'That's Hockey' at RDO camp
The NHL Network-U.S. will be broadcasting TSN's "That's Hockey" program from the RDO Camp in Etobicoke, Ont., on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
The NHL Network-U.S. will be broadcasting TSN's popular "That's Hockey" program from the Research, Development and Orientation Camp in Etobicoke, Ont., on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.

Hosted by Gino Reda, "That's Hockey" features a panel of hockey experts bringing fans up to date on the latest NHL news through analysis and one-on-one interviews.

The NHL reintroduced the RDO Camp last summer after first holding it in 2005. Many of the rule changes that were tested last season, including some faceoff variations, switching ends after regulation, hybrid icing and no-touch icing, will again be on display this year for further analysis.

There are several new additions to the agenda this time, including the elimination of the trapezoid that limits where goalies can play the puck behind the net to a confined area.

Thirty-six of the top prospects available for the 2012 Entry Draft will act as test pilots while the last two Jack Adams Award winners -- Pittsburgh's Dan Bylsma and Phoenix's Dave Tippett -- will serve as coaches for the teenagers.

Of the players at the camp, 28 play for Canadian teams, while eight play in the U.S., including four from the U.S. National Team Development Program.
Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.

— Martin Brodeur, after announcing his retirement as an NHL player and becoming a senior adviser with the Blues on Thursday
