Recommendations coming to competition committee and BoG include: moving hash marks back on faceoff circle, switching ends before OT...
There was also discussion on allowing more "kicked-in" or "directed-in" goals, but more work must still be done on that to clarify.

NHL general managers have agreed to make only a few rule-change recommendations to the competition committee after reaching a consensus to alter overtime and faceoffs.
Pending approval from that committee and the board of governors, teams will switch ends at the start of overtime to make for longer line changes.
As expected, there was not enough support to add any three-on-three or extra time to overtime.
Faceoffs could look much different, with GMs agreeing to try making centres who violate rules move 12-to-18 inches back instead of being kicked out of the circle.
A second violation would remain a two-minute minor penalty.
