NEW YORK (June 15, 2012) – National Hockey League referee and Montreal native Stephane Auger announced his retirement today, citing a desire to spend more time with his wife and three children.
“After 13 exciting years as an official for the National Hockey League, I have made the difficult decision to retire from this position in order to take a more active role in the growth of my three young children,” said Auger. “Time away from home during their adolescent years has become more and more difficult each season. Being closer to home will enable me to help my wife, Josée, and allow me to be a more present dad.”
“I would like to thank the NHL for allowing me to realize a childhood dream. The League and its officials have provided me with many fantastic memories that I will forever cherish.”
