The NHL has decided to expand the window to accommodate the NHL All-Star Game and other events.
The NHL will expand the bathroom opening to accommodate All-star games and other major events during the 2017-18 season.
The NHL also announced Thursday that a team will also be allowed to use a public restroom after games.
The expansion of bathroom access to allow all NHL players and teams to use the bathroom opens up a number of possibilities for players and fans.
The current limit is two hours of access.
The league has already announced that it will allow players and team employees to use an open locker room during a game.
Players and team workers can also use the open locker rooms during other times, but it must be done during the game.
