Oooh, boy. As a ref in the GTA, I've had a few share of run-ins. I got called up to work as a linesman for a huge Peewee AAA tournament on an emergency basis, so I was way out of my league, but in one tournament, a number of NHLers were there for their son's games:
Mark Recchi, fresh off his Cup win/retirement: terrifying. I made a questionable call and he chewed my face off.
Wendel Clark: awesome, awesome guy. He coaches his son's team and usually hangs around the arena I work at. Usually has time to stop and chat and isn't hot headed.
Scott Niedermayer (my favourite player): super, super nice and humble. I was star struck when I met him between games so I acted like an oaf when talking to him. His son is a fantastic hockey player too.
Todd Bertuzzi's son, Tag, was also there.
Tie Domi: Piece of garbage. Long story.
Tyler Seguin: grew up at the arena I work at, so he comes back during the summer. Doesn't really talk, as I don't have breasts. Was nice seeing him bring the Cup back to the arena during his day.
PK Subban: also grew up in the same arena when he played in the GTHL. See him a lot during the summer, really nice guy.
