Ref punches player, gets mauled by ice hockey team

Video shows the moment a referee 'hits' an ice hockey player, igniting a brawl between officials and players.

Referees can be seen in the video already breaking up a fight between players, as one official drags a player to the side and 'hits' him in the face.

A fight ensues as teammates rush to their player's side, which the owner of the video summarised with the words 'all hell breaks loose.'

The game was taking place between Canadian high school St. Mary's College and American Sault High School.

It was reported that police were sent to the arena, while two of the Canadian school's players were suspended.
