NHL All Star Game Referees and Linesmen: Chris Lee, Steve Miller, Tony Sericolo, and Chris Rooney

The NHL has announced the players and captains for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game. Nationwide Arena in Columbus is set. There’s one more thing you need to make it a game: on-ice officials.

Referees Chris Lee and Chris Rooney have been selected to work the All-Star Game with linesmen Tony Sericolo, and Steve Miller. All four are making their first All-Star Game appearances.

NHL 2015 All Star Game Jerseys

There’s no word on any possible changes to the officials’ uniforms for the game.  With the players’ jerseys either black or white, both having vertical black-and-white stripes under the arms, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the NHL try something different for the officials’ uniforms.

(Let’s just hope they don’t go with a solid neon green to complement the accent color on the teams’ unforms).

While we’re looking at this year’s on-ice crew, here’s a lookback at the referees and linesmen who’ve worked the NHL All-Star Game for the previous 25 years.
