When a new team is officially formed in a new city, the players get the first few days to decide where they want to live, but the actual season is only about two weeks away.
That’s because of an arcane rule in the National Hockey League that requires a franchise to get a first two-game start before any other team.
The rules, known as the NHL Rulebook, require franchises to have two consecutive games to qualify for the start of the regular season.
When the season begins, however, the rules are reversed and the second two games are allowed to be played at any time.
That makes it easier for teams to start the season in their new cities.
In the past, the NHL has struggled with the rules, so the league decided to create a new rule that would make it easier to begin the season.
It’s called the “advance start rule.”
It’s a simple change that gives teams an opportunity to begin training camp before the first game of the season, allowing them to start their season before the other teams.
It also allows the league to expand the start date of the game, giving teams an extra week of games to play in their first two games.
“This rule change is a big step forward for our game and is a win for fans,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.
“The rule change allows teams to play their first game at home for the first time in three years and it’s a win-win for all sides.”
The new rule also gives teams a little bit of breathing room.
The NHL says that teams will still be allowed to make up two-thirds of their season schedule before the start, but teams will have two weeks of rest between the start and the first two playoff games, a week before the teams start playing again.
As for the rules change, it will also make it harder for some teams to get their first games right.
Teams will now have to play two games in the last week of a season before they get their start.
That means that teams that don’t make the playoffs will have to make their first start on Sept. 11.
This means that, for example, the Detroit Red Wings will have only one game against the Los Angeles Kings before the Detroit-Arizona game.
