Officiating for 48 years Virginia native Pat “Duffy” Dyer said he does it for fun, and because without officials there’s no hockey.

His dedication to the game has now earned him a spot in the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022.

“I look at the other nominees and the things they’ve done coaching college hockey, literally starting hockey programs, and then there’s me. I just skate up and down the ice and blow the whistle. So I’m pretty excited to be joining such a highly accomplished and visible group,” said Dyer.

In his career he’s served as Referee in Chief for both the Superior and Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Associations.

Duffy, along with the late Wally Akervik of Duluth, will officially be inducted in a ceremony September 10th in Eagle River.
