During the week, 18 NHL games in American cities will offer two young officials the chance to meet the NHL officials working the particular contest prior to the game and then stay to watch those NHL officials in action. Additionally, the women's game at Little Caesars Arena between the U.S. and Canada will also provide two young female officials a chance to attend the game and meet the game's officials prior to puck drop.
USA Hockey's Salute to Officials Day as part of Hockey Week Across America is dedicated to recognizing the many officials across the country who help players, both young and old, play our great game. To recognize your local officials, share photos and videos on social media using the #SaluteToOfficials.
