“The National Hockey League mourns the passing of former linesman Dan Schachte, a consummate professional, mentor of young officials and devoted family man whose three-decade career set records for U.S.-born officials. The first American to work 2,000 NHL games, Schachte’s elite officiating earned assignment to a Canada Cup, World Cup, Olympic Games and five Stanley Cup Finals.
