Something New This Season!
For the first time, NHL teams will be able to put advertisements on the sides of players’ helmets. It will be a way for teams to recoup some revenue, and also make good to pre-existing or naming rights sponsors. According to league sources, the agreement is only for this season, and the league will sign off on the ad choices.
