Best Answer

In the eighties the NHL created a rule which was referred to as the Gretzky rule or one to prevent the Edmonton Oilers from having more open ice. Basically it was designed to have teams play five on five with offsetting penalties as opposed to four on four or three on three. That has been changed so that now with offsetting penalties the teams play four on four.
