I'm retired now but here's a column that I wrote ten years ago for hockeyrefs.com. I received a few comments from other officials telling me that it inspired them. I realize that officiating and the game has changed since I retired, but refereeing is still refereeing. You may be able to pick up some tips from the article.

As for your physical problem, a very good friend of mine, who played minor pro hockey, lost some fingers on one of his hands working at a summer job and took up refereeing. He went on to referee in two Olympics and also was a linesman in the WHA and was the referee in chief for the Province of Manitoba for many years. He's in the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame and also the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.

Good luck.
