The NHL is set to test its rookies for alcohol, taking advantage of a controversial rule change that allows players to voluntarily consume alcohol during the NHL lockout.

The NHL’s rules governing players’ alcohol consumption during the lockout were updated on Thursday to make it mandatory for players to undergo an alcohol-testing program in the absence of an emergency.

The league’s medical director, Dr. Stephen K. Smith, announced the test on Twitter.

The rules have been in place for about six months, but the NHL has never tested a team before.

The league is taking it upon itself to do so.

I am thrilled to announce that NHL players are being tested for alcohol.

The league is now in the process of determining if it will test players during the duration of the lockout, when teams will be on the clock for game action.

The NHL has not yet decided whether the league will administer a mandatory alcohol test in the aftermath of the season, but we will be making that decision in the coming days.

The policy change was a result of the NHL’s effort to prevent teams from using waivers to create space for players.

Players could sign a two-year, $4 million deal with the team that they would then be eligible to play for for in the next season.

The waiver rule was changed to allow for the creation of “space” for players that would allow them to play at a lower salary level for the duration, even if they are not fully healthy.

The new rule also allowed teams to keep players on the roster for up to four years.

The lockout shortened the NHL season by more than six weeks, reducing the regular season to four games.

It’s not clear if players who voluntarily take part in the test will receive the additional bonus money if they test positive.

“This is a first for the NHL, and a first to the NHL Players Association,” NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr said in a statement.

“This is one of the first examples of a mandatory test for the players.

This will also help us evaluate the effectiveness of our drug testing program and make sure it is being administered appropriately.

We will be discussing this with our players in the near future.”
