The goal is to provide a seamless connection between players and fans on the ice, and the interconnects that connect them should help make that happen, according to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
Bettman made the announcement Wednesday during a panel discussion with players and coaches at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
“This is about building a stronger community.
We need to build a stronger hockey community,” Bettman said.
“I think that’s the big goal. “
I think we’re on the cusp of really helping to build that relationship, so that we can really bring it together.” “

It’s one of the goals for the league that Bettman wants to reach.
The Interconnects program will also help the league identify and fund interconnecting technologies and initiatives.
The league plans to use $1 billion in funds to create infrastructure, which will help players, coaches and fans connect.
The NHL and the teams are also working to expand interconnectivity on the diamond, which is a league-wide initiative.
