Referee Wes McCauley joined episode 3 of NHL Hast Trick Trivia, hosted by New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban. The latest quiz show also featured actors Michael Keaton and Jay Baruchel, retired goaltender Roberto Luongo, and Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog.
McCauley, who Subban described as a “legendary referee [with] decent hair,” quizzed Stephen and Carter Rzepecki from Gilbert, Arizona.
“I’m ready,” said McCauley. “I’m always ready, P.K.! Come on!”
“You’re always ready to throw me in the box, too!” added Subban.
Let’s jump in to the game:
1. A player is assessed a double-minor for high-sticking. How many minutes go on the penalty clock.
Rzepecki nailed it with a correct response of four minutes. 4:00
“Bang!” a fired-up McCauley shouted. “You got the first one here we go!
2. You make the call on Andrew Shaw’s OT head-butt goal for the Blackhawks vs Ducks in the WCF.
We’ll let you check out the video for Rzepecki’s response — as well as McCauley’s announcement.
Of course, once you’ve checked out the action, dig into the ruling of the original call, along with comments from NHL players on the ruling.
Stay tuned… we here this isn’t the last we’ve seen of McCauley on NHL Hat Trick Trivia!
