In a telephone interview on Thursday the NHL’s senior vice-president of hockey operations, Mike Murphy, raved about that technology, and said representatives not only from the NFL but the NBA and even the Australian rugby league have dropped by in recent weeks to see it in action.
Jay Reid, who works in the NFL’s officiating department, visited the NHL’s “Situation Room” — located on the 10th floor of the Air Canada Centre office building — on Nov. 30, a Saturday night crammed with 10 games.
“He came in and watched us — and we’ve been communicating back and forth via email probably for about a month, about different things we do,” Murphy said.
“Jay came in and actually sat with us for probably three hours and watched how the whole room functions — how we operated at individual stations, how we operated in real time. And he saw how we do it. He asked people questions.”
