NHL Officials Show Off Their Favorite Dance Moves

DDR

The life of an NHL referee or linesman can be a hard one. The long road trips and being away from their families are just the tip of the iceberg. Add in the hostility of hometown fans who berate them anytime a call doesn’t go their squad’s way and the fact they are only noticed when they make a mistake just add-on to an already stressful job.

So, how do these guys blow off steam? What do they do to refresh themselves so they are be able to hop on that next plane and check-in at the next hotel? The answer is dancing, of course.

I discovered on the internets a site that reveals their love of dancing. What follows is NHL officials Bill McCreary, Greg Kimmerly, Paul Stewart, Rob Shick, Kerry Fraser and Pierre Champoux demonstrating some of the moves they like to bust out when they feel the need to shake their groove thang.

 Delayed Penalty

The Overenthusiastic Nazi

 Elbowing

The Tommy John

The Retarded Archer

 

 Holding

The Jodie Foster

 

Hooking 

The Kidnapper

 

Interference 

The King Tut

 

Kneeing

 Slow Whistle

Now that you know all of the moves, don’t be afraid to try them out for yourself the next time you’re out clubbing, or whatever it is the kids are calling it these days. Just remember who you learned the moves from and try being a little nicer and less judgmental when one of them fucks your team over with a completely bullshit call.

  1. Pure Gold.
    So is Kerry Fraser going to spend the rest of his life being fed by benevolent boy scouts?

  2. I think those pictures need glowsticks.

  3. I’m not sure why, but retarded archer made me laugh the most. and wraparound’s right–they soooo need glowsticks and pacifiers. Now THAT”S a way to get “non-traditional” fans interested on hockey, just have the refs on ecstasy or acid.

  4. >_> <_<

  5. @endwithstyle:

    EPIC!

  6. @endwithstyle: there’s not going to be an easy way to top that for ANYONE. +20 and a high five

  7. :)

    Thanks guys!

    -High fives back, and +lollerdollars-

  8. This WAS funny. But when it comes down to it, I think that the fans blame the refs all the time when in actual fact they are just doing their jobs. Which, as you mentioned probably aren’t the easiest jobs to have. They just seem to be the easiest to blame.

    But the retarded archer made me laugh for a while. Very creative ;-)
