The American Hockey League is ending their 'hybrid icing' test.

The AHL announced on Tuesday that effective they will go back to the standard icing rules on Friday.

"We believe that 564 games has been a sufficient test period for 'hybrid icing' and that the application of the rule has been positive for the most part," AHL president and chief executive officer David Andrews said in a statement. "But because we have more than 300 players recalled to the National Hockey League each season, it is our view that these players should have the benefit of a consistent application of the icing rule in both the AHL and NHL."

"Hybrid icing" will continue to be in effect through Thursday's games.
