Van Massenhoven Suffers Facial Injuries

via TSN,
It has been a traumatic week for veteran NHL referee Don Van Massenhoven. The former Ontario Provincial Police officer was right there when Jiri Fischer collapsed earlier this week at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit and last night in Florida, Van Massenhoven took a puck to the face and suffered significant facial injuries that will indefinitely keep him from working. The 45-year-old from Strathroy, ON had to undergo seven hours of reconstructive facial surgery for multiple fractures after a puck deflected into his face during last night's game between the New Jersey Devils and Florida Panthers in Sunrise, Fla.
