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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
