This year again I am participating in Hockey Fights Cancer.  Along with Movember, this month is also a time when hockey heightens its awareness and fund raising for all types of cancer that affect men.  Join me as once again, I fight along with hockey to beat cancer and find a cure for all.

Since I became a professional referee 6 years ago, I still enjoy officiating NHL prospects.

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.

Movember is upon us for men’s cancer awareness and research.

Movember is the way we raise awareness for men’s cancer and raise money for men’s cancer research.  We men grow mustaches of all sorts, shapes and sizes to raise this awareness.  And we post our photos and raise money through the website for movember.com

Movember was made popular by athletes and especially hockey players.  I am a hockey player, mentor, coach, referee and seminar instructor which is how I became acquainted with Movember.  I have participated and promoted Movember ever since. I hope you will join me and the millions around the world in raising awareness and money and hopefully one day finding a cure for not only all men’s cancer but all cancer all over the world.

I just skated game #5,000 in my ice hockey officiating career!

Big fight

I would like to thank the WHL Seattle Thunderbirds, the best Major Junior-A Spring/Summer hockey in the state of Washington, for allowing me to skate their games.  I would also like to thank the Monday, Lynnwood, Men’s Checking A-League, the best Men’s Winter hockey in the state of Washington, for allowing me to skate their games.  And thanks to my family for all their support.  In the words of Pavel Bure, “I couldn’t have done it without all of you.”  Here’s to the next 1,000 games.  Thanks also to all the associations and leagues in the U.S. and Canada, who have allowed me to skate their games.  In the words of Joe Walsh, “Lucky I’m sane after all I’ve been through…life’s been good to me so far.”  Thanks, everyone!
