The NHL recently released a controversial rule by banning players from using pride tape, but unsurprisingly, given how short-sighted the ruling was, players have already begun rebelling.

A shock move from Travis Dermott

During Saturday's game, fans noticed that Arizona Coyotes defenseman Travis Dermott had pride tape on his stick, and it quickly made the rounds, with many expecting a fine to be levied his way soon.

Now, the NHL has officially responded to the veteran's actions, releasing a statement shortly after the game concluded.
