NHL, AHL extend officiating agreement
From press release
Keeping the zebra channel stocked.
Good to see an agreement here, hope we get 1 with the NHL and NHLPA and the CBA with those negotiations.
What could happen, if the agreement will end a no new will be signed?
Things can continue "as is" (both sides agreeing to that).
Or they can sever arrangement (which would mean the NHL has no where to develop new zebras in NA). Perhaps having to pay "apprentice" salary to new guys learning the ropes (from the rafters or something).
ISN'T IT THE same union, LS, for both the AHL/ECHL since referees are also developed in that league on their way up, just like the players/coaches/executives
I know the PHPA represents players in the AHL and ECHL.
Haven't investigated/looked for officials union for AHL and/or ECHL......
