Resources and Collection

NHL LogoThe NHL Hockey Referees Resources and Collection is filled with virtual links to contacts, news, videos and behind the scenes looks into the lives of the officials in the National Hockey League.

The sport of hockey is a fast, dangerous and exciting game at any level. The NHL provides the highest caliber of professional hockey in the world and the officials have to be the best of the best. The commitments and sacrifices made with the goal of becoming an elite official are tremendous in any sport. The addition of skating skills and the fast pace of the game played at the NHL level make this job one of the most difficult officiating jobs in the world.
