A Look At Retiring NHL Linesman Scott Driscoll

from Mark Masters of TSN,

Scott Driscoll hopes his distinguished 28-year career as a National Hockey League linesman isn't over just yet.

His farewell season was set up so that he'd finish with 1,850 regular-season games. When the league hit pause on March 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Driscoll still had three to go.

Driscoll's last outing was in Toronto on March 10, when the native of tiny Seaforth, Ont. was honoured with a video tribute in the first period and received congratulatory handshakes from Leafs players after their win.

"That was really cool and surreal and right now that's holding up as maybe my last game ever," Driscoll said.

It was a nice send-off, but not the career capper Driscoll had envisioned. That would've been at Madison Square Garden on March 18.

"My favourite building in the league is New York. I just love the city and I had 82 people coming to that game. I'm hopeful that I have at least one more to go."

Driscoll spoke to TSN by phone to go through some of his career highlights.
