One thought on “Ref Friesema suspended indefinitely

  1. I was at two of the games Friesma reffed on Friday and Saturday night in Anchorage (UAA vs. Canisius) and (UAA vs. USAF). The next morning I was reading the paper and heard about someone who was arrested for causing part of the airport to shut down. Imagine to my surprise when I read that it was one of the WCHA refs at the games I had just attended. I’ve heard he posted bail yesterday but he’s still prohibited from leaving Alaska and unable to fly at the moment anyways.
