I have a friend who's a ref and he played as a kid and then started reffing in his late teens. he worked his way up through the local USA Hockey ranks. when we got an ECHL team he started out as the mascot while still reffing (linesman technically) high level USA Hockey and ACHA college games. when the local ECHL team needed a fill-in linesman for the night he got his big break. now he lives in Kansas City and is the Royals mascot during the summer and an AHL ref during hockey season.
