Talking Old School Ref

from Hockey Refs,
Bruce Hood was widely considered the NHL’s top referee in 1984 when he retired after 21 seasons. During that time, he officiated 1,033 regular season and 157 Stanley Cup playoff games, three All-Star Games, and three Canada Cups. He was also the first professional to officiate a world championship, the last to wear number one on his jersey, and the last to officiate in all Original Six arenas. After retirement, he pioneered a line of officiating equipment, authored two best-selling hockey books, and went on to be a successful travel agent and eventual public servant as Canada’s first air travel complaints commissioner.
