Radio Interview with NHLOA Member Kendrick Nicholson on his NHL debut.
By Fred Wallace, Bayshore Broadcasting.
Former Sauble Beach resident Kendrick Nicholson is pursuing full time work as a National Hockey League referee.
After a lengthy term in the Ontario Hockey League as a linesman, Nicholson rocketed up the referee's ladder in the OHL and made his National Hockey League debut January 17th at Ottawa in a game the Senators lost 3-2 to the Carolina Hurricanes.
By pure coincidence, Fred Wallace was at the Senators-Carolina game that night and was able to witness Nicholson's debut.
NHL policy restricts game officials from media requests early in their careers, but after a second outing officiating a game between St Louis & Columbus in early February, the NHL coordinated an interview with Kendrick Nicholson pertaining to his NHL debut.
