I guess there's a first time for everything, and this weekend I saw something I've never seen before.
:16 left in the game and Team 1 is awarded a penalty shot.
Penalty Shot Begins - Shooter A from Team 1 advances the puck about 1/3 of the way to Team 2's goalie and Player B from Team 2, while he is sitting on the boards watching the penalty shot, throws his stick onto the rink right behind Player A but the stick does not interfere with Player A. Player A scores on the penalty shot.
Here's the question: If Player A failed in his attempt to make the penalty shot, WHAT'S THE CALL? Would Player A be allowed to retake the penalty shot?
By the way, Player A scored, the ref's told the scorekeeper to run out the clock and Player B was ejected. (Don't know if he got a 10:00 game misconduct or not.) It was Player B's last game of the tournament.
