The officiating rosters are set for Hockey Canada’s spring national championships.

Forty-four officials – 22 referees and 22 linespersons – from across the country have been selected by Hockey Canada for the Esso Cup, TELUS Cup and Centennial Cup, presented by Tim Hortons.

“After three long years, it is a thrill to have our spring national championships back, and to be able to select officials to work these prestigious events,” says Dan Hanoomansingh, manager of officiating with Hockey Canada. “Officials work hard through the season for the opportunity to be on the ice in these big games and, just like the players, they have been patiently awaiting the return of these events.”

OFFICIALS SELECTED FOR ESSO CUP AND TELUS CUP

The 28 officials chosen to work Canada’s national U18 club championships were coached and evaluated through the season in their Member programs, before final selection by Hockey Canada.

Officials will arrive in Okotoks on May 14 for two days of preparation and training with Hockey Canada’s high-performance officiating coaches, prior to the start of the tournaments.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for these officials,” says Hanoomansingh. “These are some of the best and brightest young officials from Member high-performance programs across the country. If you look back at the rosters for past events, those officials have gone on to great success both on and off the ice, and I have no doubt the same will be true for this group.”

OFFICIALS SELECTED FOR CENTENNIAL CUP

The 16 officials who will work Canada’s National Junior A Championship are among the best at the Junior A level across Canada. The expanded, 10-team tournament has provided greater opportunities than in past years. Officials were coached and evaluated throughout the season in across the Canadian Junior Hockey League, before final selection by Hockey Canada.

“We push our elite officials to perform at a championship level every game,” says Hanoomansingh. “The national high-performance group is incredibly competitive, with a limited number of assignments available each year. So, the postponements and cancellations of the past two seasons have been especially challenging, but this group has stayed focused, continued to perform and earned the opportunity to officiate at this event.”
