COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Hockey announced today that referees Brett Sheva (Horsham, Pa.) and Andrew Wilk (Camarillo, Calif.), and linesmen Ryan Daisy (Mansfield, Mass.) and Shaun Morgan (St. Louis, Mo.), have been selected as the game officials for the second annual CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game. The event will take place Sept. 26 at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.
The CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game will include 40 of the top American prospects eligible for the 2014 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
"The four officials that have been selected to work are among the best and brightest in USA Hockey's officiating program," said Matt Leaf, USA Hockey's director of officiating education program. "They earned this assignment through hard work on and off the ice and dedication to the profession."
Sheva has spent the last three seasons as a referee in the ECHL. Previously, he worked in the Central Hockey League, Southern Professional Hockey League and the United States Hockey League. Wilk is entering his second season as a referee in the ECHL. His experience also extends to the CHL, SPHL, NCAA Division I, USHL and North American Hockey League.
Daisy officiated in the American Hockey League and the ECHL a season ago. He also has experience in the CHL, SPHL and USHL. Morgan has worked in the AHL and ECHL the last two seasons. Additionally, he has officiated in the CHL, SPHL, USHL, NAHL, International Hockey League and Tier III Junior levels.
