22 Individuals Serving During International Ice Hockey Federation Events in 2015-16 Season.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Twenty-two American officials are serving as referees or linesmen for major International Ice Hockey Federation events in 2015-16, USA Hockey announced today.

“We look forward to having this select group of officials represent USA Hockey on the international stage,” said Matt Leaf, director of USA Hockey’s officiating education program. “They’ve all worked extremely hard to get to the highest level and have earned this opportunity.”

American officials will take part in 12 IIHF events this season, including the the IIHF World Junior Championship in Helsinki, Finland, the IIHF Under-18 Women's World Championship in St. Catharines, Ontario, the IIHF Women's World Championship in Kamloops, British, Columbia, and the IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Assignments for the 2016 IIHF Men's World Championship in Moscow and St. Petersberg, Russia will be determined in late February. 

Officials assigned to the IIHF events this year include Chris Pitoscia (Edison, N.J.) and Brian Oliver (Rochester, N.Y.), who served at the 2015 IIHF Men’s World Junior Championship; Katie Guay (Dedham, Mass.) and Jamie Huntley (La Jolla, Calif.), who served at the 2015 IIHF Women’s World Championship; and Jerilyn Glenn (St. Paul, Minn.) and Jessica LeClerc (Old Orchard Beach, Maine) who officiated at the 2015 Under-18 Women’s World Championship. Nine officials will be making their first appearances at IIHF events.
