Picking on you ref's can be fun, but in all seriousness if you get in our way you're going to get hit, as players we are focused on getting through anyone to get to that puck. With that being said...protect your butt with the Pro Referee Pants with Girdle by CCM. Constructed with ripstop nylon these pants will last longer than you think. Also with a sewn in girdle you'll have 360 protection. Try to stay out of the way because we're not gunning for you but you just may get in the way and then you're fair game!
