This took place in a high school hockey game between St. Mary’s College and Sault High of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario back in January. The video was finally uploaded last week. Two players were suspended for two games. The footage shows referees breaking up a fight. At the end, a referee is shown hitting/slapping a player. A teammate saw the incident and went after the ref. I can’t find anything about any punishment for the referee in a news search, but a YouTube commenter says the official got a 2-month ban.
