I wasn't a player, I was an official. When I was seventeen, the comment beside my graduation picture, in my high school yearbook, said that I wanted to be a professional hockey Referee. Two years later, when I was nineteen, I was working in Major Jr. Hockey as a Linesman and I was selected to work the Memorial Cup Final that same year. I also got to work a few games in Minor Pro Hockey that year. I was 5'7" and weighed 120 lbs. I had to break up fights between guys almost twice as big as me. Don't question yourself or ask anyone else if they think that you can do it. Tell yourself that you can do it. Think positive, it worked for me.

The one thing that will also get you noticed, whether you're a player or an official, is your skating ability.
