Your On Ice Officials For The Winter Classic

from John McGourty of NHL.com,

If Chris Rooney hears a fan at the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic Friday (1 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, RDS) call out, “Wicked bad call, ref,” he’ll feel right at home.

Rooney, from South Boston, was chosen to referee the game along with veteran Kerry Fraser. New Hampshire’s Brian Murphy will be one of the linesmen, along with Lyle Seitz.

The whole crew is looking forward to the game with great excitement. They know they’ll be part of a rare historical event and they’re soaking up every minute of the pre-game excitement. Thursday, they were asked by NHL ice guru Dan Craig to test the ice and gave him their evaluations.
