How Long Before We See This Technology In The NHL?

from Ellen Jean Hirst of the Chicago Tribune,

Beginning with the NFL's regular season, players will be equipped with tracking technology in their shoulder pads measuring how fast, far and what routes they run – in real time.

How far did that player actually run to gain 4 yards? How fast? When, exactly, did he start running out of steam?

This NFL regular season, players will be equipped with tracking technology in their shoulder pads that will tell broadcasters and fans, in real time, the answers to those questions and more.

I could imagine some players may not like being 'followed' on the ice, but I think it would be useful.

But coach, I did go to the net, but coach, I did back check, etc... No you didn't!
