The 32 on-ice officials from 12 different countries were selected from a long list and after careful observation of their performances in domestic play and international tournament during the ongoing season.
The crew in stripes in Zurich and Lausanne is a mix of experienced refs and fresh blood. Czech referee Antonin Jerabek has worked in seven World Championships (men’s top division) before including three gold medal games followed by Russian referee Roman Gofman with six Worlds and two gold medal games. Among the more experienced referees is also a local one, Daniel Stricker from Switzerland, who will officiate his fourth World Championship and called the gold medal game in 2017.
For five referees and seven linesmen it will be the first time at this event after shining at other international events.
Canada, Finland, Russia, Sweden and the United States are best represented with four on-ice official each at the Worlds.
At the same time the IIHF has also made the assignments for the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division I Group A in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and changed the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division I Group B to the four-man system with additional referees assigned for the event in Katowice, Poland.
