With hybrid icing being tested out during preseason some coaches are going to find the adjustment to the potential new rule a little tricky. One coach who’s not sure what to make of it is Boston Bruins bench boss Claude Julien.

Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com hears from Julien and finds the coach dealing with “mixed feelings” on the new rule.

“For coaches I think [the hybrid icing] is a bit of a mixed feeling. We’re very supportive of it when it comes to the safety of the players” said Claude Julien. “I think what it does sometimes is take away some of the plays [you can make]. You’ve seen us use at time before right from inside our blue line we’d rim the puck in and had our fore check just to get the puck in deep.”
