Laughed at for most of the pre-season thus far is the National Hockey League rule against tucking in a jersey. Deemed a player safety issue the act of tucking in a jersey is now a two-minute delay of game penalty, as Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin found out last night as he became the first player to be assessed a penalty for the infraction.
As many laughed about the new spectacle of games being won or lost based on a penalty for a jersey tuck others have started to speculate about a more profitable meaning behind such a rule.
