Thereof, what do the officials in the penalty box do?

In an NHL game, the person is an NHL off-ice official. One of their jobs is to keep the penalty time on a stopwatch, in case of clock malfunction. The home team penalty box official will also keep a cooler of frozen pucks in the penalty box, to replace any which go out of play or are damaged.

Beside above, are penalty minutes good in hockey? People always question why getting penalty minutes are a good thing in fantasy hockey, and the only answer that can be given is that it allows every NHL player to potentially have value in fantasy hockey -- the enforcers are able to contribute to a fantasy team, just as they do in real life.
