ncaah- The Berenson Boundary

The NHL's recent experimentation with the "Bowman Blueline" will be followed this October by a trial of the "Berenson Boundary".
The committee also reviewed a request from the University of Michigan to allow the school to use an experimental rule in exhibition games. The proposal, promulgated by Michigan head coach Red Berenson, would change the attacking zone boundary from the blue line to the center ice red line after the traditional zone is gained legally. So, if the attacking team gains the traditional attacking zone legally under current rules on side, the attacking zone expands to include the space between the blue line and the center ice red line.
The committee approved the proposal and extended the option to any school or conference that would like to try this in exhibitions, not just Michigan.
The "Berenson Boundary" will likely be on display, under game conditions, on Sunday afternoon, October 2, when Michigan plays host to the University of Toronto in exhibition action at Yost Ice Arena.
