 TORONTO (AP) -The NHL and its players' union have formed a group to examine the size and configuration of goalie equipment. They will meet June 11 in Toronto.
The NHL representatives include Doug Risebrough of Minnesota, Garth Snow of the New York Islanders, Jim Rutherford of Carolina and Brett Hull of Dallas.
Three goalies and two skaters will represent the players - Martin Brodeur of New Jersey, Rick DiPietro of the New York Islanders, Ryan Miller of Buffalo, Dany Heatley of Ottawa and Mike Cammalleri of Los Angeles.
There is a belief among some in the hockey world that reducing the size of goalie equipment would increase scoring.
The idea to have a group examine the issue came about at the general managers' meetings in Naples, Fla., in February, where there was unanimous consent to do something about the size of goalie equipment.
If the group decides changes to the rules governing goaltender equipment are warranted, and will not jeopardize the safety of the goalies, their recommendations will be forwarded to the NHL's competition committee for consideration.
