NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League announced today a series of rules changes for the 2014-15 season, following approval earlier in the summer by the League's Board of Governors and the National Hockey League Players' Association:

Rule 1.8 – Rink - Goalkeeper's Restricted Area

The trapezoid will be expanded by two feet from the goal post on both sides of the net.

Rule 23 – Game Misconduct Penalties

A new Game Misconduct category will be created. Clipping, charging, elbowing, interference, kneeing, head-butting and butt-ending move from the general category into the same category as boarding and checking from behind ("Physical Fouls"), whereby a player who incurs two such game misconducts in this category would now be automatically suspended for one game.

Red Wings' Ericsson still bothered by injured finger

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson said Wednesday he will participate in training camp at less than 100 percent because his surgically repaired finger is not quite healed.

SOG: 66 | +/-: 2
"It still doesn't feel 100 percent but I guess these kinds of accidents, or whatever you call it, may take some time," Ericsson told the Red Wings website. "It's been a frustrating summer with the training and all of that because it's hard to hold onto a bar with the weights on. … It was a little frustrating for sure, but I should be fine."

Ericsson missed the final 14 games of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs after his finger was broken blocking a shot against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 18. Surgery included four pins to stabilize multiple fractures and repair of a torn tendon.

"My finger was crushed, so it was a lot of pieces that they had to try to puzzle together and I guess some pieces they left out because they were so small," the 30-year-old said. "There were some gaps between some of the bones and it took some time for the bones to heal in those places."
