NEW YORK, NY – NHL commissioner Gary Bettman today announced that the league will be releasing a special edition DVD of the best offside challenges of the season.
The DVD, entitled 'Overturned', will be on sale July 1 across Canada and the United States.
"We've had so much feedback about the offside rule this year," Bettman told The Elbow today. "Just like the shootout, it gets fans out of their seats and really involved in the game."
"It's hard to not get caught up in the tension of it all when a goal is called back because of an offside from 60 seconds ago. We've listened to our fans, and this is what they want, so why not wrap it up into a nice 90 minute package so they can relive all of their favourite moments from the season?"
Bettman went on to guarantee that all of the offside challenges from the playoffs would also be included.
"People would go crazy if there was an offside that affected the outcome of the Cup Final and it was left off the DVD," he said. "We'll make sure to include the cup-deciding decision in there as well."
In other exciting news for fans, EA Sports today announced that NHL 18 will include a new feature where fans can call their own offside challenges from the bench.
Each copy of the game will come with a replacement controller.
