Referee Records

There's an old joke that goes "What's black and white and never right?" The answer is "a referee!" While I do not believe that any referee is biased, I do know that different referees have different styles and attitudes. This, in turn, can affect the outcome of the game. Here are the results of Canuck games based on those referees who have worked at least ten games since the 1986-87 season (when referee names were first reported regularly). There is also a list of referee records for playoff games.

Notes
Referee's Seasons indicate which seasons they refereed Canuck games. In some cases this may be different from the seasons they have actually worked as referees. The first year is the start-year of the earliest season. The second year is the end-year of the latest season. For example, 1999-06 means that the official refereed games from 1999-2000 to 2005-06. In the playoffs, Years represents the actual years the referee worked Canuck games. For example, 1993-12 means the official refereed games in the 1993 playoffs through to the 2012 playoffs. Obivously, this does not mean they worked every year between those two years.

The GR column represents the number of games refereed. Some officials also work as linesmen and those games are not counted here. For example, Shane Heyer has worked many games as a referee and even more as a linesman. Only those games where he had the orange bands on would count towards his record.

With the advent of the two referee system, this statistical information had to be adjusted. An "alone" win is worth two "shared" wins when calculating winning percentage. For example: if a referee worked one game alone and the Canucks won and worked two games with another referee which the Canucks lost both games, his winning percentage would be .500

For referees who only worked prior to 1999-2000, the Canuck Record is Wins-Losses-Ties. Starting in 1999-2000, their record is listed as Wins+Overtime Wins, Losses+Overtime Losses, Ties. This is used to calculate the Adjusted Winning Percentage (AWP). Shootout wins and losses are treated the same as overtime wins and losses.

Statistics are current to the end of the 2015-16 season. Referees that worked at least one Canuck game in 2015-16 are highlighted in bold.
