    There was a few rules changes this off season. The AHL added an exemption request (in writing) for goaltenders over 6'6" to increase the paddle length on their stick, and they also changed some of the other goaltender equipment rules.

    Referees can now award goals if a player would have gained clear possession of the puck with no defender between him and the open net before being fouled, and now game misconducts in preseason and playoff games count toward the number you can get before being suspended (or fined).
