BC Official Selected for IIHF Men’s World Championships
Monday, May 9, 2016

BC Hockey official Brett Iverson (Richmond, BC) has been selected as a referee for the 2016 IIHF Men’s World Championship in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia, taking place May 6 – 22, 2016.  Recently, Iverson officiated at the 2016 World Junior Championship in Helsinki, Finland where he officiated in the gold medal game.

He is the second consecutive BC Hockey official to receive both of these prestigious IIHF assignments within the same season.  During the 2014-2015 season, Bevan Mills (Langley, BC) participated as a linesman at both events.

Iverson started officiating in 1997 and has gone on to establish himself as one (1) of BC Hockey and Hockey Canada’s most accomplished officials.  He received his Hockey Canada Level VI certification in 2011 and received his first IIHF assignment in 2015 when he officiated at the World U18 Championships in Switzerland.  He has also officiated multiple Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Top Prospects games, Subway Super Series games and was selected for the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) Ed Chynoweth Cup from 2013 – 2015. Brett has represented the WHL at two (2) consecutive Memorial Cups in London, Ontario (2014) and Quebec City, Quebec (2015, where he officiated in the championship game.

BC Hockey had the opportunity to speak with Iverson upon his return from the 2016 World Junior Championship earlier this season.
