For today's Chicago Blackhawks and Ottawa Senators game, there were originally two officials on ice.

A shot by Boris Katchouk unexpectedly struck one of the referees, causing an unfortunate incident.

A shot fired by Katchouk hit Furman South, hoping to catch the goalie off guard and hopefully catch the net or post for a goal.




The shot was quite risky, but Katchouk's accuracy was not as great as he had hoped, and he hit #13 South in the face as a result.

Thus, Furman South had to be escorted off the ice, leaving one NHL referee to oversee the match.

South has been injured twice this season, he was also injured in a faceoff between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars in November of 2023.

This is tough luck for the referee, and we wish him well.
