Was talking hockey with a buddy yesterday and he brought up a question that I had no answer for(shocking I know). He was saying that we all know there will be players who`ll need to shake some game rust off but what about the refs??? How did, or how do the refs stay "sharp" during a situation such as this??
I have never been a ref but I assume that their preparation for games, although different, has to be part of their day to day process? Anyone know if NHL refs were working say AHL games or alike??
