The NHL is considering a motion controller for next season, according to ESPN’s Darren Dreger.
Dreger reported that the NHL is expected to announce a motion control system for next year, but no specific dates have been announced.
The league hasn’t revealed how much it is willing to pay for a new controller.
A controller would come as a big change for the game, which has been the focus of many of the latest updates to the game.
Last year, players started to use a puck to control their shots and speed, but the game is still heavily reliant on players shooting from the slot.
That hasn’t changed this season, but this year’s game has been overhauled with a more dynamic shot-puck and shot-blocking system.
The goalies are also getting a lot more effective, with a puck that deflects off their stick to provide a more accurate shot.
Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown and Jordan Nolan all have a much better chance to succeed than they did last season.
The NHL has said it will continue to invest in the game in order to keep up with other sports and keep players engaged with the sport.
