Alumni Alert…Former Capitals Defenceman -#24 Troy Paterson-Refs in AHL!


Congratulations to Former Capitals Defenceman, #24 Troy Paterson (20010 – 2013).

Troy Paterson, 25, was the referee for a game between the Hershey Bears and Springfield Thunderbirds – the minor-league affiliates of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and Florida Panthers, respectively.

Prior to his call-up to the AHL, Paterson – son of former Surrey Eagles’ owner and Peninsula businessman Ronnie Paterson – had been officiating in the junior ranks, including the BC Hockey League.

The younger Paterson is a former BCHL defenceman who played in the league from 2010-2013. He spent three seasons with the Cowichan Valley Capitals, before being traded to his hometown Eagles a few weeks prior to the 2013 Trade Deadline.
