BCHL officiating guru takes national role with CJHL

Retired National Hockey League linesman Brad Lazarowich is helping develop junior A officials.

A man who has helped oversee BCHL officiating the last few seasons adding a new role to his plate.

Brad Lazarowich is currently the BCHL’s Assistant Director of Officiating, working with Derek Adams. While he continues in that role, Lazarowich will also serve as the Canadian Junior Hockey League’s newly-minted Director of Officiating.

Lazarowich brings a wealth of experience to the role, drawing on lessons learned during a three-decade run as a linesman in the NHL.

Lazarowich worked close to 2,000 regular season games and 200-plus playoff matches in the big league, including three Stanley Cup Finals, a World Cup of Hockey and NHL All-Star games.

Among his duties as CJHL director of officiating will be to represent the league with Hockey Canada on playing rule advisement and differentiation.

Lazarowich will assist with the selection of officials for CJHL events such as the RBC Cup and its four regional championships (the Fred Page Cup, Dudley-Hewitt Cup, ANAVET Cup and Doyle Cup) along with the World Junior A Challenge.

Lazarowich will also be responsible for compiling a national depth chart on qualified officials working CJHL Leagues across Canada and pockets of the U.S.

“Brad shares our vision on developing young officials and ensuring our officials throughout the CJHL are versed on our player safety concerns and game management philosophies,” said CJHL president Brent Ladds.
