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.”
