CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Hockey Canada has announced its officiating rosters for 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.”

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