From time to time, coaches will have to duck for cover as pucks whizz towards their heads from a player's stick. But sometimes players just bat a puck out of midair into coaches' faces randomly.

Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette is a victim of the latter crime. Sorry, Pete. We're pretty sure Jacob Trouba didn't mean it.
