Special day for Okotoks local officials.

Calgary, AB

Okotoks and High River officials joined the NHLOA officials in Calgary for the first Annual ORA Refereeā€™s Night Out. Okotoks and High River officials Caleb Garet, Mike Skitch, Ian Shardlow, Troy Kowal and Corey Brandt were special guests of NHL Referees Tom Kowal, Brad Meier, and Linesmen Shane Heyer and Central Zone alumni Don Henderson before and after the game.

The local officials had the chance to visit the NHL officials locker room before the game to see how the crew prepares for the game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Calgary Flames. They also had the chance to ask many questions on the everyday tasks of being a NHL official.

The ORA Association would like to thank Tom, Brad, Shane and Don for allowing us to join the crew for the night. A great time we had!
