Be an NHL official (for about 8 minutes)

Oct. 3, 2013

Ever wonder what it’s like to be an NHL official? Somebody with the

Coyotes apparently did, too, because in the team’s final scrimmage of

training camp, they strapped some cameras to the officials’ midsections

to find out.

The result is the following video,

which is sort of a highlight version of the the officials’ views from

the opening faceoff to the final horn. Takeaways: There’s a lot of

skating involved (surprise!), and there’s some interesting conversation

that takes place on the ice.
