This week, the NHL unveiled its first-ever mini spy cameras that allow players to get an inside look at the game, while also providing a view of the ice.
The league will debut the spy cam this Friday, June 27 against the Carolina Hurricanes.
The cam is set to be worn by 10 players and will allow for up to two players to be in the same zone simultaneously, and it will allow a player to track a player by watching the player’s facial expressions.
The cameras are designed to be more discreet than the ones that allow the NHL to track players on the ice during a game, but they’re still able to provide a 360-degree view of what the players are doing.
The NHL is also rolling out the mini cameras to other teams this week.
The Philadelphia Flyers will unveil their own mini spycam this weekend, with the camera being used in their games against the Florida Panthers.
The Flyers are also testing out a new mini camera that uses the players’ own heads to track their moves.
It’s a pretty neat trick, but it’s not the most impressive spycam on the market.

The new spy cam will be released in partnership with the National Hockey League Players Association, and the NHLPA will donate $1 million to the organization’s youth hockey program.
