Can't-Miss Video: Coach plays "blind ref"

By Allan Muir

Spend a night in a minor league or junior hockey rink and you're likely to hear an organist play Three Blind Mice as a cheeky retort after a questionable call by the officials.

But you could spend your whole life in small-town barns and never see a protest quite like this.

This footage comes from a contest Saturday night the between the Wenatchee Wild and the Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League, a Tier 2 Junior A circuit.

Taking issue with a series of seven straight calls against the Wild in the third period, associate coach Chris Clark took ref baiting to a whole new level. He donned a pair of dark sunglasses, used a stick as a cane and began walking around the ice in an fashion that, well, you need to see it for yourself.

No surprise that Clark was immediately ejected from the game and could face supplementary discipline from the league. After a third period that featured 93 minutes in penalties, the Brown Bears had the final laugh, winning the game 2-1.
