Maybe what hockey needs is a few more mothers doing the work referees should be doing…
Poor Gina O’Toole, a suburban Boston hockey mom, has taken a lot of heat from the hockey crowd since she went on the ice recently to break up a fight.
Her identity was not made public until today, when she appeared on Good Morning America.
“The ref turned around and he yelled at me and told me to get off the ice and I said, ‘You need to do your job,’” she said. “What concerned me was the feeling of the blows to the back of the head and a child going down the ice of maybe a potential head injury.”
