Have you ever watched a pro sport and thought to yourself, "I'm pretty sure I could what they do just as well?" Well, now you are going to get as close as you can to the action without actually stepping into the game yourself.

GoPro has announced that the brand is partnering with the NHL to allow players to wear Go pros to give the fans a new perspective when it comes to watching their favorite sport.

The idea opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for not only the NHL, but for all sports in general as it will allow for new and exciting camera angles -- that will benefit both the spectator as well as the referees. With these perspectives, fans will be experiencing something much more authentic and refs will be able to make a more precise call.
