Referees Join Endangered List After Another Ref Gets Blasted — in Preseason NHL Game
On Monday, another conscientious objecting striped soldier went down after a player knocked him down. To be fair, it was on the ice in an NHL exhibition game, but tell that to the ref’s insurance policy!
In a preseason game between Vancouver and San Jose Tuesday, Canucks defenseman Yannick Weber accidentally ran into referee Dan Henderson, taking them both to the ice.
Both men were able to remain on the ice and continue the game, but the message was sent – the Canucks were going to win this exhibition game or else!
Well, they lost 4-0, so expect bigger repercussions in their next game!
