I am a USA Hockey Level 4 referee in the Denver area. I have been working games for close to a decade at the youth and adult levels up to college club. I am also a seminar instructor and a mentor.
USA Hockey rule number 601 is titled 'Abuse of Officials' - it covers a wide range of misconduct by players and coaches, and it is the most commonly cited rule when issuing a 'game misconduct'. This blog is about my experiences as a Referee, Linesman, player and occasionally a coach.
