Referee Chris Rooney had a rough final week of the regular season. 

First, he was leveled by New York Rangers center Vincent Trocheck.


Rooney went down, but was able to remain in the game.

Then, a week later, he gets nailed by the puck on a dump in from San Jose’s Henry Thrun. 


This time, Rooney left the game for repairs — temporarily leaving Wes McCauley as the lone ref in a three-man officiating crew. 

Once again, though, Rooney returned to action.  

He wrapped up his regular season in Edmonton on Thursday… successfully avoiding both players and pucks.
