So, what is being said is that the NSO can not asses the penaly or lack there of...of not having on a helmet cover?

What if a pivot comes into the box post jam and removes the cover and tosses it to her team before the onset of the next jam?

Ideally, the Lineup Tracker will notice this and get a ref's attention.  The ref can instruct the skater to keep her Pivot cover on her helmet.  Penalty box staff could do the same thing, if they saw it happen.

If no one can get a ref's attention in time, and no refs otherwise notice, it's one of those crappy situations where they'll probably just get away with it.  If there are no star pass attempts, it's little-to-no impact.  Sucks, but not the worst thing that can happen.

Speaking with my pink shirt on as PBstaff:

If I saw that happen in my box (tee hee), I would be flagging the attention of the HR or an OPR. The penalty is to be served by the player AND the position, and if the Pivot goes to the box, a Pivot should not be on the track while one is serving.

The PB staff and the Lineup Trackers should be working as a team to confirm who should be serving, and in which position.

If this happened between the jams, as the PBMgr, I'd try to approach the HR with the Pivot's color, number(circled) on my whiteboard, and explain what I saw.

Likewise, if a Pivot is in the box, and a Pivot for that team is on the track after the jamstart whistle, we, the PBstaff, are going to be hooting and hollering like a band of chimpanzees to get the attention of one of the OPRs, to try to get the extra skater off the track.
