WASHINGTON — The Winnipeg Jets will wear new laser-projection equipment in training camp, but not on the ice.
A team official said Tuesday the equipment will be worn during practices, but the Jets will not be wearing the equipment on the game-day ice during games.
Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff told reporters on Monday that the equipment was not on-ice during practice, but that the team was looking into whether it could be in the future.
The equipment is a small device that measures the intensity of the laser beam at a range of up to 300 feet, according to a video from the company.
It was developed by LaserVision Technologies Inc. and is similar to the equipment worn by the Toronto Maple Leafs last season.
