During a Predators game against the Detroit Red Wings, a NHL referee still had a hot mic and was caught saying he wanted to call a penalty earlier on one of the teams.
This NHL referee’s career is over as we know it!
The referee, Tim Peel, had no idea his mic was still on when he said he wanted to call a penalty against the Nashville Predators earlier. The NHL referee’s mic was still on and it was on television too. Today (3/24) the NHL announced that Tim Peel will “no longer will be working NHL games now or in the future.” He was also only one month away from retiring. To all the other NHL referees out there, don’t even attempt to do this to our Tampa Bay Lightning.
