The Youth Hockey Referee Spotlight highlights two amateur hockey referees from Illinois per month and gives them the opportunity to attend a Blackhawks game and meet the NHL refs prior to puck drop. The impact and contribution of youth referees in hockey is as important as the players, and this is a great opportunity to reward them for their contributions.
Featured in the fifth spotlight are Max Spiro and Quinten Jedd. They attended the game vs. the Florida Panthers on February 24, 2015.
