Yeah, tell the ref during a stoppage. My experience is they'll call it or they won't in the moment. Getting the penalty from yelling about it won't happen. Don't expect help from the referees after the fact.
Just be careful to keep your cool, I've seen way too many penalties from players getting overzealous with how their opinions differ from the referee's.
Letting the player know to keep his stick on the ice I'm all for. Especially in lower divs. Sometimes with colourful language.
I've got a huge scrape on the side of my visor from some guy's stick during a puck battle. Would have carved me pretty good. No call, no nothing from the ref. Just had to keep going on my shift.
