There was an absolutely ridiculous call in a game I was playing last week. Well, it wasn't so much the call, rather the lack of a call and the ensuing explanation.

My teammate was carrying the puck behind our net and some guy on the other team came flying in to hit him (in a non-checking men's league) and the momentum of the hit brought the kid's stick up and into my teammate's mouth causing a cut with bleeding. The ref actually called the guy for the hit, roughing I think, but when my teammate showed him the blood in his mouth and explained about the high stick, the ref responded with:

"All I can tell you man is that you should be wearing a cage."

Direct quote. I couldn't believe my ears.
