The NHL is in a position to help players and teams get a feel for how to respond to messaging.
On Friday, NHL officials announced that players will be required to use an “instant messenger” app or a “smart phone with a built-in instant messaging capability” in order to receive messages from friends and family.
Players who have received a message from a friend or family member will receive an immediate message that they have received that message.
But a message sent from a player’s own phone is not considered a reply.
The NHL said it will begin using a new app in 2019 to address this issue.
“Players should use a smart phone to communicate and share their messages with friends and families,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a release.
“This is important to help prevent messages from getting into the wrong hands.
If players use their own phone, they’ll also be able to receive instant messages from a wider variety of friends and colleagues.
We will also be testing a new messaging app for the 2019-2020 season that will be compatible with the new messaging system.”
Players will also need to use a smartphone app or smartphone app that has a built in instant messaging feature.
This includes apps such as Skype, iMessage and WhatsApp.
The NHL said the new app is being developed by a group of players and will help improve player communication and reduce the risk of getting messages that are meant for someone else.
“The NHL and its players and their families are committed to building a safer, more efficient and enjoyable game for all,” NHL Executive Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs Dan Fehr said in the release.
The League will continue to monitor players’ use of the new apps and communicate to them when the app is implemented.
The league said the apps will be available in 2018-2019 and 2020-21.
The new messaging apps are expected to be available on iOS and Android devices.
