The Avery Rule shirt

Following a week during which the NHL hierarchy cast Sean Avery as the ultimate villain and took the extraordinary step of amending its rule book in the middle of the playoffs in order to outlaw the face-guarding tactics No. 16 employed against Martin Brodeur in Game 3 of the Battle of the Hudson, the league has authorized Reebok to manufacture and sell an "Avery Rule" tee shirt, The Post has learned.
Interesting. Thanks to Jen for sending this in.

UPDATE From SportsBusiness Daily: "The NHL has denied a report in today's N.Y. Post that claims the league has authorized Reebok to manufacture an "Avery Rule" T-shirt. The T-shirt refers to the NHL amending its rule book to outlaw the faceguarding tactics Rangers LW Sean Avery employed."

I challenge anyone to take that information and put it into a less-intelligible sentence. Do they have a period shortage at the Post?

I might be wrong, but doesn't the league HAVE to authorize this? Or is it simply up to Reebok and the Rangers?
