Daisy is from Mansfield, Mass. but went to school at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut. He played hockey until his sophomore year of high school where he decided to focus on other aspects of the game. He began refereeing local high schools in Connecticut during his junior year of university. The 28-year-old linesman was then invited to a USA Hockey Officiating Development Camp and caught the eye of NAHL’s Coordinator of Officials, Chris Allman. He was hired on the spot and worked in the NAHL until he graduated. After his senior year he was promoted to the USHL where he spent one year, and then promoted again to the ECHL, spending three years learning to officiate professionals. He spent the entire 2015-16 season working the American Hockey League where he was selected to work the 2016 Calder Cup Final. The phone call finally came in the summer of 2016 when he was offered an NHL linesman minor league contract (40/40). Daisy was promoted to an NHL full time linesman status in the summer of 2017.
