‘Headlines’: Coach’s challenge won’t include throwing objects on ice (usually)

Hockey Night in Canada's Elliotte Friedman and Damien Cox's "Headlines" included a discussion of a possible suspension for Tyler Toffoli, PK Subban's 3rd fine for diving (Cox notes that the "divers' list" doesn't roll back to zeroes for the playoffs, either), a discussion at the GM's meetings of making the All-Star games teams' more meaningfully-picked than the fantasy format, Cox reporting that Mike Richards is working out in LA to potentially rejoin the team, and it wouldn't be CBC/Sportsnet if Cox didn't address the Maple Leafs' signings of Nikita Soshnikov and Casey Bailey:

As for the coach's challenge, as Sportsnet's Mike Johnston notes, no flags will be thrown on the ice (or anything else):

If and when the NHL implements a coach’s challenge it will work differently than what we see in the CFL and NFL.

For one, there won’t be any flags tossed onto the ice.

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, challenges will work the same way timeouts work. After contact in the crease during a goal or when a player is penalized (or not penalized) when a puck goes over the glass, the coach will call the referee over to the bench or the official will look to the bench and ask if the coach would like to use a challenge.

“You can’t have certainty on this, but the type of situation which this is intended to address is the puck goes in the net, nobody makes a call but it turns out there was contact that nobody saw,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said last week. “It would be an attempt to get the better call, but it would ultimately still be the official’s call and it would still be his judgment.”

Video- Tanner Pearson And Tyler Toffoli May Be Out For An Extended Period Of Time For The LA Kings

from Rich Hammond of the OC Register,

The Kings lost a lot on Saturday, including their top two young wingers and a chance at a remarkable comeback victory.

After a wild start, in which Winnipeg scored goals on its first three shots, the Kings rallied and took a third-period lead but then lost 5-4 in a shootout in front of 18,230 at Staples Center.

The result seemed secondary to the fact that the Kings must now go forward without both Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli, two of their top four goal scorers this season.

Shortly before the game, the Kings announced that Toffoli had been diagnosed with nononucleosis, an energy-sapping virus that will sideline him for multiple weeks.

Then, during the second period, Pearson battled with Winnipeg's Jay Harrison and went feet-first into the boards. Pearson has initially been diagnosed with a broken left ankle, as first reported on the Kings' official blog late Saturday night, but Pearson is scheduled to undergo more tests Sunday.

via Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

Tanner Pearson, who crashed heavily into the boards during a second period scoring opportunity in Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to Winnipeg, suffered a broken bone in his left leg, LA Kings Insider has learned. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.

“They told us he would not return, so I’ll give you more information as we go along,” Darryl Sutter said after the game when asked if he was able to provide any information on the nature of the injury.

A reliable source told LA Kings Insider during the second intermission that the injury was a broken ankle, information that hockey operations confirmed. A follow-up conversation with a third source said that the injury may be located more in the lower leg, and not the ankle.

Below, watch the Pearson injury...
