Hot Mic Catches Funny Moment Between Ref and Player


Thanks to a hot mic, we gained another insight into the discussions between referees and players during games.

We often see funny scenes between officials and players in the NHL, and we can now add this one to the list!

In the game between the Sabres and the Devils, Connor Clifton was ejected after a hit to Nico Hischier's head.

In the scrum that followed the hit, a referee warned a player in the best way possible.

Here's what he said:

"You're getting a power play, get the f**k outta here" 😂🔊

The ref in question is Chris Rooney, one of the NHL's most "colorful" officials. He's known to get into it with players.


The season only started two weeks ago; we can't wait to witness more moments like these in the coming months!
