ECHL officials will be returning to Traverse City to officiate the annual NHL Prospect Tournament.
This year’s Traverse City Tourney features five teams – the Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, and Toronto Maple Leafs – and runs from September 15-19.
Here are the eight officials selected to oversee this year’s event:
- Riley Brace
- Antoine Bujold-Roux
- Jarrett Burton
- Brandon Grillo
- Tyler Hascall
- John Lindner
- Quinn Schafer
- Rocco Stachowiak
Bujold-Roux, Hascall, Lindner, Schafer, and Stachowiak all worked in the ECHL last season.
ECHL Director of Officiating Operations Stephen Thomson will be in attendance to handle any rule or playing situations.
“The ECHL would like to thank the Detroit Red Wings and the participating teams for continuing our great partnership in overseeing the officiating for the Traverse City Prospects Tournament, Thomson said. “The Red Wings and staff at Centre Ice make us feel right at home and always do a fantastic job running a top notch tournament.”
“Our Officials take pride in showing up prepared for what is always a very competitive and highly skilled event,” Thomson added. “It is invaluable to their development and is always a highlight of each of their on-ice careers.”
This is the 10th straight tournament handled by ECHL referees and linesmen.
