Yeeeeesh. I’m going to assume that this was friendly fire but the laugh in the background doesn’t help the cause. If you’re a Morning Skate OG you would remember that I used to ref and yes this was my worst nightmare. THANK GOD that USA didn’t trust me with anybody above the age of 12 so I never had to reaaaally worry about a slap shot coming in hot but still you always have to have your head on a swivel. Worst part about this from a refs standpoint? You were literally seconds away from leaving with $40 in your pocket, injury free and instead you wind up going viral for being a target in slap shot practice.
