As a linesman with the IIHF, Andriy Kicha had the best view in the house of the 2011 World Juniors in Buffalo. But big international tournaments aren’t exactly new to the Ukraine native - he also worked as a linesman at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
From hearing him speak, with a heavy Ukranian accent but a good handle on the English language, you can tell that he loves what he does.
We discussed the World Juniors, the media circus involving the Russian team, and one great aspect of working games with U20 players, during our conversation on Thursday as he was preparing to leave Buffalo for the long journey home.
