Since I became a professional referee 6 years ago for the National Hockey League, I still enjoy officiating NHL prospects in the Western Hockey League every year. It is so much fun skating with these young players who are so strong, tall and fast. Their skill is impressive and I enjoy the verbal sparring and the one-liner jokes that we share with each other.
Besides officiating other professional sports such as the National Lacrosse League and the Professional Golfers Association, I do enjoy officiating the NHL the best. I am just thankful for the Seattle Thunderbirds organization for giving me the continual opportunity and I am thankful that I can keep up with these skaters on the ice year after year.
That’s me, holding back that giant!
