The rules will be in effect for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
The NHL announced a number of rule changes on Thursday, including a partial ban on the spin-o-rama move and an expansion of the area protecting goaltenders.
The rules, approved earlier this summer, will be in effect for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
Under the changes, players will no longer be allowed to use the spin-o-rama move during shootouts or penalty shots.
Jackets, Johansen still far apart

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Considering the young franchise is coming off the first playoff appearance in team history, the Columbus Blue Jackets should be eager to get the 2014-15 season underway.
However, when NHL training camps open Thursday, the Blue Jackets could be without a key component of their memorable 2013-14 campaign as centerman Ryan Johansen remains unsigned.
Johansen, a restricted free agent, is taking a hard-line stance to negotiating his next contract, and part of his strategy could include holding out from training camp.
