On-ice officials have a lot to watch out for during a hockey game. Pucks, sticks, getting caught between two players. But a bin full of snow is a new one.

On Friday night during the Bruins-Hurricanes game in Boston, linesman Jonny Murray was taken out when he inadvertently turned into a member of the arena staff who was clearing ice shavings during a break in play.

It wasn’t pretty but Murray stayed in the game, reminding everyone that officials are tough too.
