BCHL recognizes referees

The junior A BCHL handed out awards to its top referee and top linesman earlier this week.

BCHL officiating director Derek Adams has completed his review of the 2014-15 season and announced the winners of the officiating awards.

The Kelly Sutherland Award winner for top referee is Mark Pearce from North Vancouver.

In his fifth year of officiating in the BCHL, Pearce earned a top assignment by refereeing the deciding sixth game of the Fred Page Cup final. Pearce went on to represent the league at the Western Canada Cup in Fort McMurray, AB. working the championship game.

The Brad Lazarowich Award winner for 2014-15 is Tim Plamondon who, at the age of 18, worked the Fred Page Cup final in only his second year officiating in the BCHL.

Plamondon officiated more than 100 games from the minor hockey level to junior A, and Adams said it was his work ethic and maturity on the ice as a young linesman that earned him the award.
