What Kind of Rule is This?

I’ve been listening to the Canes’ first preseason game, and just learned a new rule in the NHL that blows my mind. Semin was called for a delay of game penalty. He must’ve cleared it over the boards from his own end, right? No. Well then he must’ve covered the puck with his glove. No. Then what did he do? He had his jersey tucked in.

The new uniform restrictions are pretty ridiculous. They say it’s for safety issues; yeah, sure, that makes so much sense. How is tucking the jersey dangerous? Also, elbow pads can’t be exposed. So what? They’re still protecting a player’s elbows whether it’s hidden or not. With all the padding they have beneath the jersey, this new rule is very ill-advised.
