AP reports that, just in time for the Stanley Cup playoffs, coaches in the NHL have been given three iPad Pros for each bench, with the officials also receiving an iPad Pro to help them to review coach’s challenges. All 16 of the playoff arenas have received the iPad Pros, as well as Macs, as part of a partnership between the NHL and Apple.
For the first time this season in the NHL, coaches have been allowed to use video monitors on the bench to help them pick the right time to challenge offside and goaltender interference occurrences. The iPad Pros, which were tested by the coaches late in the regular season, enable the coaches to view game videos in real-time to help players asses their own performance.
