NHL rule changes for 2007-08
newjerseydevils.com – The Rbk EDGE jerseys aren't the only thing different about the National Hockey League this season. The league has also announced some changes to the rulebook:

Rule 24 - Gross Misconduct
The term "Gross Misconduct" has been eliminated from the rule book. Any act that would have been assessed a Gross Misconduct penalty will receive a Game Misconduct. Accumulated Game Misconducts can lead to fines or suspension.

Rule 25 - Penalty Shot
A player may be awarded a penalty shot if he is fouled on a clear breakaway outside his defensive zone, for example, anywhere in the neutral zone or in the attacking zone. Previously, a penalty shot was awarded only when the player on a clear breakaway was fouled on the attacking side of the red line.

Rule 56 - Interference
Referees have been given discretion to assess a major penalty and a game misconduct when an injury results from an act of interference. Previously only a minor penalty could be assessed for interference.

Rule 76 - Faceoffs
All faceoffs must be conducted at one of the nine faceoff dots painted on the rink. Previously, there had been instances, such as when the puck left the playing surface, which caused the faceoff to occur on unmarked ice, parallel to the dot nearest the place where the puck departed.
