2 Minutes for Slashing (the Ref’s Throat)

Being a hockey referee isn’t easy, especially in the Junior C levels in Woodstock, Ontario; you have to imagine the pay isn’t particularly good and then there are the fights.

When the New Hamburg Firebirds took on the Woodstock Renegades in a recent game Kevin Brown, the 25-year-old linesman was wading in to stop a fight between two players when they fell to the ice. Unluckily for Brown, when the players fell to the ice one of them fell with his skates up in the air which then caught Brown under the chinstrap. Yikes!

Ever the pro, Brown continued trying to stop the fight but quickly realized he was seriously cut. He then skated over to the Firebird’s bench and got off the ice.

“I saw the skate go up and (Brown) grabbed his neck right away,” fellow linesman Bruce Byers told the QMI news agency afterwards. “You knew he was leaking. I told the guys on the ice, ‘It’s done.'”
