Don Adam
The National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) has announced that Don Adam will assume the role of Director of Officiating for the conference at the conclusion of the 2012-13 college hockey season.

I don't know '59, can't say I've ever been a fan of any ref, including Adam, but I think he was the most respected in the WCHA. I've heard several people say that he was the best of them all (except for maybe Zelkin (or some "Z" name) but he's no longer around).

Did they keep Anderson in the league? This would be their chance to dump him onto the Big ten. Hopa,hopa,hopa!!

Hey, at least they hired a Colorado guy. I actually think it's a good thing that he's been reporting-to and working under Shepherd in the WCHA. I would think he has a good idea of what NOT to do, and a vision of how he wants his team of Referees to be, in comparison to the WCHA. I wonder if he's going to continue in law enforcement.

Just get rid of Anderson. Maybe it's not fair, but Anderson has lost credibility with this market, fans do not accept him.

But if Anderson leaves who will I get mad at on Saturday night? :(

Guy has to be responsible for at least one extra beer purchase a game for me.

I wonder if the refs will be able to "make chit up as they go along"?

No people; this is a good thing. Hot Toddy has been in some rather tight situations, including Final Fives and Frozen Fours. He's got the goods. I'm pleased with this. It's good to be King....I think he'll have a clear cut expectation in the new league - totally apart from the WCHA. Give it time, guys..... you'll like this. Trust me.
