2 Refs Going Forward this season?

Post by Digger »

Are they adding the second ref for the balance of the season. One doesn’t cut it!

I was told just prior to the Christmas break that we were going with 1 ref for the balance of the season; that of course doesn't mean that they can't change their minds. I too would prefer two.

From what I have seen about half the refs are capable of doing a Jr game on their own; the other half would definetly benefit from a second set of eyes out there

As of now the schedules that officials have received (at least in the west) are with 4 officials (2 refs). St. Catharines @ Thorold last night was played with 2 refs, so I imagine that’s what the whole league is going with.

I heard the same today too. They are going ahead with 2 refs but will be monitoring the situation in case they have to revert back to one. Great news having 2 refs again.

Just as I was getting used to the 3-man system again! It felt like I was watch old-time mid-90's hockey again.

Sometimes you just have to straighten your crown and remind them who they're dealing with.
