from the Globe and Mail,
Stephen Walkom has decided to haul his referee’s sweater out of mothballs.
Walkom, who had his 46th birthday on August 8, is stepping down as the NHL’s director of officiating with the intent of staying with the league as an on-ice official, a league source confirmed Tuesday. Walkom is expected to be at the NHL officials training camp which begins on Sept. 7. It’s believed that when Walkom accepted the executive position during the 2004-05 NHL lockout that it was on the condition that he would be allowed to return as an on-ice official if/when he made that decision.
