Except to wish with all of our hearts,
That you were here today.

John D'AMICO, Hockey Official: 1937-2005
Last of the linesmen from the National Hockey League's six-team era, he was an honest and powerful whistle-blower who earned the respect of the big bruisers he separated on the ice
By James CHRISTIE, Tuesday, May 31, 2005, Page S7
There is a breed of macho hockey player who believes he needs to flout the rules of order and batter others with his fists in the name of "respect." John D'AMICO earned respect by prying them apart and setting the game back on track.
One of the most honoured officials in the history of the National Hockey League, Mr. D'AMICO got respect the hard way. Linesmen and referees have no home games and they score no goals. Fans don't buy tickets to cheer for the men in black and white. In fact, the greatest compliment an official can receive is that no one takes notice of him doing his job. It means he's been efficient and fair and hasn't made a questionable call that interfered with the game.
Mr. D'AMICO was a powerful and honest man throughout 40 years in professional hockey, 23 of them on the ice. He was enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1993 after working 1,689 regular-season National Hockey League games and 247 playoff contests. He was trusted to serve in the most critical situations and, over the years, officiated in 52 games in Stanley Cup final series. He also was called on for six international series.
"No one is more respected than John," former officiating partner Ray SCAPINELLO said in an interview, reflecting on Mr. D'AMICO's place in the game. Mr. SCAPINELLO, who retired last season, was teamed with him for most of his first three seasons.
"Everyone knew, if it was an important game, John would be one of the two linesmen. If it was the deciding game of a Stanley Cup playoff series, it was John's. The seventh game of the Stanley Cup finals? It was automatic. We went to training camp in the fall knowing that, if the Stanley Cup went to seven games, John D'AMICO would be one of the three officials deciding the game."
Playoff wars between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens were often put into Mr. D'AMICO's hands.
On May 21, 1978, Don Cherry's "lunch bucket" Bruins were engaged in a bitter final with Scotty Bowman's great Canadiens dynasty team. A vicious punch-up ensued between Boston's Stan Jonathan, as solid as a fire hydrant and about as tall, and Montreal's Pierre Bouchard. It was Mr. D'AMICO's task to step in and subdue the bigger man -- and Mr. Bouchard was happy he did. He had suffered a broken nose and a cut face ("like he'd been out kissing bumpers on Highway 401," according to one report.) As a result, Mr. D'AMICO's zebra stripes were blood-soaked, and looked like the punchline to that old joke: black and white and red all over.
Dan Maloney, a famed scrapper in Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit and Toronto, said the league's tough men held Mr. D'AMICO in high regard. "I could take care of myself in a scrap, but when John put that bear hug on you, it was all over. He wouldn't let you get hurt. He was a man's man when it was a man's game."
National Hockey League executive vice-president Jim Gregory said Mr. D'AMICO's legacy is the respect that players, general managers, coaches, fellow officials and fans held for the linesman. He "brought a passion and dedication to his profession, both on the ice as a linesman and later as a supervisor of officials."
Mr. D'AMICO started off as referee, officiating his first game on October 12, 1964. After serving 22 games in the role, he became a linesman. When he retired in 1987, he was the last of the officials who had worked in the National Hockey League's six-team era. He moved to the National Hockey League's front office as a supervisor of officials, but made one final on-ice appearance in an emergency role in 1988. He'd been watching a game on television when he saw an official go down with an injury. He grabbed his skates and raced to Maple Leaf Gardens in minutes.
Mr. D'AMICO was qualified to referee but took the rules of the game seriously and found that role to be very stressful. Paul Stewart, a one-time brawler as a player, became a referee who tended to let players settle scores for themselves. Once, when Mr. Stewart was injured in a match, Mr. D'AMICO took over his whistle "and the game went from no penalties to 10 penalties," Mr. Stewart said.
Don Cherry remembered Mr. D'AMICO's stringent calling of the rules. On May 10, 1979, with the Bruins on the verge of upsetting the Canadiens in the semi-finals at Montreal Forum, it was Mr. D'AMICO who caught Mr. Cherry's team with too many men on the ice. The Habs tied the game on a power play, then won in overtime.
As a boy, John D'AMICO played church hockey in Toronto and reached the junior B level. He was working at a job in construction when a friend suggested he try officiating church hockey. He found he was good at it and loved it. Mr. D'AMICO moved up to the Toronto Hockey League and then the Ontario Hockey Association before a job opened up in the National Hockey League.
Mr. D'AMICO maintained a high profile in the off-season, using his name and popularity in charity work, on an individual basis and in conjunction with players who staged golf and tennis tournaments for foundations.
John D'AMICO was born on September 21, 1937, in Toronto. He died on May 29, 2005, after a struggle with acute myeloblastic leukemia. He was 67. He leaves his wife, Dorothy, children Jeff, Anthony, Angelo and Tina and his grandchildren. son Angelo has followed his father's path as an National Hockey League linesman.

I Remember -- John D'AMICO
By Ron WICKS, Wednesday, July 13, 2005, Page S9
Former National Hockey League referee Ron WICKS writes about John D'AMICO, whose obituary appeared on May 31.
I first met John in October of 1964 when he officiated his first game as a rookie linesman in Kitchener, Ontario I was his linesman partner. The referee, Frank UDVARI, said he was going to be a good one -- we joked that he would have my job within three weeks and I was soon sent to the American league as a referee. I returned to the National Hockey League in 1967 as a referee where I re-united with John and worked with him for about 20 years. John would hustle old hockey sticks and take them to kids at local hospitals (he also ran an Easter Seal Skate-a-thon at Ontario reformatories) and instructed at clinics around the world where he met such interesting people as a Russian referee who told him that, in Russia, the referee was "boss' and that linesman were "shit." That got John's attention. No player or coach ever gave a rookie referee a hard time when John was around.
