Nothing like talking a little hockey – especially when it comes to officiating.  We joined the Team Stripes Podcast to talk refs!

From Team Stripes:

On this episode of the Team Stripes Podcast we speak with Josh Smith, the Managing Editor of Scouting the Refs. During the episode, we speak with Josh about the origins of STR and how it grew from humble beginnings to becoming the premiere source for finding out the latest news and info about hockey officials.

Josh shares some great stories about his journey, and we even discuss the analytical side of officiating, and talk about how data is playing an increasing role for hockey referees.

This episode is a lot of fun, and great for those looking for more insight on the man behind Scouting the Refs.

Thanks to Team Stripes for having us on to talk zebras.  Visit and to learn the art of officiating.
