The BC Hockey League (BCHL) has announced its officiating staff for the 2023-24 season.
This year’s staff will consist of five officiating managers, 26 referees and 24 linespeople.
This is in addition to the four officiating development coaches and mentors announced last week.
The officiating staff was selected by BCHL Vice President of Hockey Operations Brad Lazarowich, who has been with the league since 2012 and previously was an NHL official for 30 years.
The staff was selected from a group of over 90 officials who submitted an application to work for the BCHL.
“We are proud to announce our staff of officials today for the upcoming season,” said Lazarowich. “We were overwhelmed with the number of applicants, which goes to show the desire for officials to work in our league has never been higher. We look forward to dropping the puck in September with this group of officials and, working alongside our development coaches and mentors, helping them reach their highest potential.”
