Ref Punched in Face

Last night during the Avalanche vs Blackhawks game a little fight broke out. Referee Andy McElman bravely jumped in to break it up which is part of his job description.

What isn’t part of his job though is getting punched in the mouth by Blackhawks defensemen Michal Rozsival. I’m sure it was an accident but you know that athletes everywhere have felt like doing this at some point.

Hockey refs are tough too since he popped back up.
