Making the OHL...as a Ref!
Submitted By Niagara North on Mon 07 23, 18
Niagara North alum Matt Ceko ('97) has made the OHL, but in a different way...as a linesman!  Matt played for NN for 5 years and at age of 15 he began officiating minor hockey in St. Catharines and it immediately became a true passion for him. After only 3 seasons of reffing minor hockey he was hired into the OHA, officiating Junior C, B, Senior and University hockey. In 2016 he was presented with the Most Promising Linesman award at The Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. He has also attended the NHL exposure combine in 2015 and will attend this August for a second time. Matt is looking forward to his first season in the OHL, and continuing to develop towards the highest level attainable.  Congratulations Matt and best of luck this year!!
