PODCAST: Hockey official Denis Drolet helps make history at Centre Vidéotron

On Saturday 12 September 2015 hockey history was made when the Quebec Remparts faced off against Rimouski Oceanic at the Centre Vidéotron in Quebec City.

The Remparts 2015/2016 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League home opener was also the first ever hockey game at the new Centre Vidéotron arena.

As well as the players taking to the ice for the first time in the venue there were of course the referees and line judges too.

Denis Drolet is a long-time servant of the league having clocked up over 1,000 games in a nearly 30-year refereeing career. He was one of the 4 on ice officials on that historic night.

We caught up with Drolet recently and he spoke about his moment in history, his hockey career, and more.
