Hockey rage has struck — literally — a referee in Breezy Point, Minn.
It was a pee wee hockey game on Saturday — repeating: it was a peewee — hockey game during which Daniel Sojka of South St. Paul struck a referee, according to KSTP, which has video of the incident.
Sojka has been charged with disorderly conduct.
He was listed as a coach with an Apple Valley youth hockey team — The Peewee C Co-Op Firehawks — but his name has since been deleted from the organization’s website.
