This past month, Linesmen, Michel Cormier had the lucky chance to meet a great friend, Jesse Starkman at the Glencoe Club Restaurant in Calgary,AB. Jesse who was born with Down Syndrome is an avid fan of The Calgary Flames and also has a big interest in officiating. Jesse and Michel talked about the recent status of his Flames and answered many questions about on-ice rules and life as an NHL officials. Michel had to be sharp on his rules because Jesse was very knowledgeable of the Rule book! Together they were joined by restaurant manager, Dave Fida which employs Jesse to help the employees. Special mention to our room attendant Danny to make this possible.
The NHLOA would like to thank the Stakman’s family for a very special evening.
