Brandon Skates with NHL Officials

How cool is this?!?

Brandon, who’s a youth hockey referee, was nominated by his senior officials, to represent USA Hockey tonight at PPG Arena for Hockey Across America celebrations.

Brandon had the opportunity to meet all of the officials working the Pens vs. Sharks game, as well as tour the Pens facilities at PPG Arena.

To be selected for this honor required dedication to his job, and the support of those senior officials who he’s been lucky enough to be mentored by over the past several years.

Congratulations Brandon.
