Toledo to host training camp for ECHL officials


Toledo will host the training camp for officials of the ECHL this weekend at the Huntington Center.

The preseason camp will include returning members of the on-ice officiating staff, newly hired referees and linesmen, and ECHL supervisory staff.

The camp opens today and ends Sunday.

The officials will participate in fitness testing, on-ice instruction, rules tests, and video sessions.

“The supervisory staff that we have at the ECHL is second to only the NHL,” said Joe Ernst, the vice president of hockey operations for the ECHL.
