The Hockey Ref isn’t meant to be just another hockey blog. Our goal is to provide readers with a view from not just a player, ref or fan, but rather all three. This three-pronged view is based on over 20 years of playing hockey at various levels, officiating both youth and adult hockey, and being a lovers of the game. Add in a journalism background and the results will be sound, well-written pieces that are current and designed to encourage conversation.
As a reader you can expect relevant post that aren’t behind the times. We will treat every team fairly. We will even have guest writers from time to time ranging from other officials and players to journalists and fans, with all levels of experience included.
Want more coverage on a certain topic? Let us know. Want to scream and yell at us because you didn’t like the penalty you took during your last beer league game? Look someplace else because, as refs, we support each other and never question another official’s call. Have a question? Shoot us an email.
We’re excited to launch The Hockey Ref, and look forward to what lies ahead.
Thank you – Brad, Editor, The Hockey Ref
