Scott Cherrey

The Drayton, Ontario native played all of his minor hockey in his hometown before moving up to play for the Listowel Cyclones Jr. B, at the age of 16. In 1993, the left winger was drafted 3rd overall by the North Bay Centennials of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). He played a total of four seasons highlighted by winning the OHL Championship in 1994. Cherrey was drafted 41st overall by the Washington Capitals in the 1994 NHL entry draft, but never signed an NHL deal. He later played a couple of seasons for the University of New Brunswick (AUAA) where they won the National Championship in 1998. He completed his hockey career in 1999-2000 in the ECHL with the Mobile Mysticks.

 A few years went by before he got serious about the sport again, but this time as an official. He worked a total of five seasons as an amateur official, working the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA), the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and the American Hockey League (AHL), eventually being offered an NHL minor league linesman contract in the summer of 2007. He was promoted to a full-time NHL linesman status the following summer.
