WCHA women’s on-ice official Morrison to referee Ferris State men’s exhibition games Oct. 3-4

Veteran WCHA women’s official Kristine (Langley) Morrison, who has worked four NCAA Women’s Frozen Four tournaments and several international competitions, will serve as a referee this weekend at Ferris State.

A member of the on-ice officiating staff for the women’s WCHA since 2005, Morrison will skate Ferris State’s Crimson & Gold intrasquad game Saturday and the Bulldogs’ exhibition contest against Canadian university Lethbridge on Sunday.

“The WCHA is committed to providing growth opportunities for all of our officials,” said WCHA men’s commissioner Bill Robertson and women’s commissioner Aaron Kemp in a joint statement. “As part of that process, we are exploring new evaluation and development paths for our female officials. Kristine has consistently been rated among the top on-ice officials in the women’s league and is certainly deserving of this opportunity for continued professional growth.”

Morrison played at Wayne State from 2001 to 2005.
