Minor League Hockey Linesman Takes a Punch to the Face Breaking Up a Fight

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffNovember 11, 2013

British Columbia Hockey League linesman Ryan Dawson took an inadvertent shot to the face and was down for the count.

After a fight broke out between T.J. Dumonceaux and Christian Weidauer, Dawson stepped in to break it up before taking a wild swing from Dumonceaux that left Dawson falling to the ice.

Dawson ended up tweeting about the extent of the injury. 

All stitched up and heading for home! Thanks to @rbstripes90 and @BLdash7 for their support and patience waiting #trueteammates
