We’re down to the final four teams — and the sweet sixteen officials.

With the playoffs moving fully to Edmonton, the officials below will be coming together. Those formerly in Toronto are heading west to join the rest of the crew in Alberta.

Here are your NHL Referees and Linesmen for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoff Conference Finals.



Francis Charron, Gord Dwyer, Jean Hebert, Steve Kozari, Wes McCauley, Dan O’Rourke, Chris Rooney, Kelly Sutherland

Out from Round 2: Eric Furlatt, Chris Lee, Brad Meier, Francois St. Laurent,


Derek Amell, Steve Barton, Scott Cherrey, Greg Devorski, Brad Kovachik, Matt MacPherson, Kiel Murchison, Jonny Murray

Out from Round 2:  Devin Berg, Michel Cormier, Pierre Racicot, Mark Shewchyk


Referee Jean Hebert is the only ref change from 2019; all the rest are working back-to-back finals.  On the lines, Barton and Kovachik are returning to the Conference Finals after missing out in 2019.

Standby officials are referee Francois St. Laurent and linesman Devin Berg, both of whom will be on-call to re-enter the bubble in the event of injury.


Congratulations to the NHL Referees and Linesmen selected to work the Conference Finals of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
