IIHF Considering coach's challenges for 2018 Olympics


Recommended Posts



The NHL won't be sending its players to Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the Winter Olympics in February, but that's seemingly not stopping some of the league's newest rules from featuring prominently.

According to International Ice Hockey Federation president Rene Fasal, the IIHF is planning to review the possibility of including coach's challenges at the 2018 Games.

"We will have consultations with the leagues that are currently utilizing the coach’s challenge system and will look at the best possible method of implementation," Fasel said.

"We are also aiming to test out a system during the international breaks in the leadup to the games."

The proposal to include the challenges was introduced last Friday at the IIHF semi-annual congress, with support coming from Canada, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, and Russia.
