Society seems more divided everyday with common sense becoming a scarcity. In the hockey world it is sadly no different, with stories of parents and their outrageous behavior becoming the norm.

TSN Reporter Rick Westhead revealed things are getting so bad that the province of Quebec that a local hockey association in Saint-Rémi now directs on-ice officials younger than 18 to wear a yellow armband, hoping it will help parents and coaches recognize they are minors, some as young as 14. Quebec hockey officials are also considering body cams for officials, following the lead of some soccer associations in Quebec and Ontario.


Minor hockey is something that should be a learning ground for players and on ice officials, the fact that these measures need to be put in place to protect officials is abhorrent.


We'll see it this works, hopefully it gives these parents pause as to the way that they're acting, something that shouldn't need to be said
