The San Jose Sharks bring us the first ref-cam of the offseason.  Here’s a look at their recent prospect scrimmage from the zebras’ point of view. 

Some highlights:

  • 0:50 – The game’s first penalty call. For this one, the penalty boxes stayed empty. Instead of two-minute minors, penalty shots were handed out for infractions. 
  • 1:10 – “I got it, I got it,” says the ref as goaltender Liam Herbst loses the puck in his skates after the whistle.
  • 1:20  – The ever elusive broken stick goal. 
  • 2:37 – The ref offers some words of support to linesman Mark Parshutkin. 
  • 2:40 – Forward Caston Sommer spots the camera
  • 4:50 – The referee warns the bench, “Careful with the line change, boys.”

Thanks to the San Jose Sharks and to the officials for this excellent look at their prospect scrimmage.
