It's evident that hurling verbal abuse at young players or staff has no place in hockey, a point underscored by a distressing incident during a U13 AA hockey game in Cochrane, AB.


The young referee displayed remarkable composure and professionalism despite being subjected to expletives from the head coach, with the situation escalating as the exchange unfolded. The crowd's reaction, marked by jeers and discussions about the incident, further highlighted the severity of the behavior.

The aftermath remains uncertain, as it's unclear whether Hockey Alberta, overseeing this league, will address the situation. How they choose to handle this incident, including potential suspensions or fines, is of interest.


Undoubtedly, parents witnessing this display will not be pleased with what unfolded on the ice.
