Synopsis: An insider's look at life on the lines

To hockey fans, Ray Scapinello's name and face are as recognizable as any star player or coach in the NHL. Scampy, as he is affectionately known has had a long and storied career as a linesman in the NHL. His 5-foot-7 frame and 163 pounds belie his ability and endurance on the ice. When Ray retired in 2004 after 33 years in the NHL, he had officiated in 2,500 regular season matches (never missing a game), 426 playoff games, and an astounding twenty Stanley Cup final series. His untouchable statistics make him a lock to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame as an official, but even they do not do justice to the respect he has earned from officials, players, coaches, and fans alike. On and off the ice, Scampy is considered one of hockey's great personalities, a consummate professional, a chronic practical joker, and a true ambassador of the sport.

Between the Lines gives a rare glimpse inside the world of hockey from an unusual perspective — through the eyes of one of the game's greatest and best-loved officials. Scampy shares his tales of life both on and off the ice as an official, an inside look at what those players and coaches are really like, what they really say and do, and what the game looks like between the lines. Full of fun stories, perspective on how the game has changed and evolved, and stories and interviews about Scampy from players, coaches, and other officials, Between the Lines is a captivating memoir of a truly unique life in hockey.

From the Inside Flap: To hockey fans everywhere, Ray Scapinello’s name and face (and bald head) are as recognizable as any star player or coach in the NHL. Scampy, as he is affectionately known, has had a long and storied career as a linesman in the NHL, officiating in four different decades at the highest level of hockey.

His 5-foot-7 frame and 163 pounds belie his ability and endurance on the ice. Even in the heyday of bench brawls and the Broad Street Bullies, Ray was always in the middle of the action, but never missed a single game for injury, illness, or any other reason.

When Ray retired in 2004 after 33 years in the NHL, he had officiated in 2,500 regular season matches, 426 playoff games, and an astounding twenty Stanley Cup final series. But even his untouchable statistics do not do justice to the respect Scapinello has earned from officials, players, coaches, and fans alike. On and off the ice, Scampy is considered one of hockey’s great personalities, a consummate professional, a chronic practical joker, and a true ambassador of the sport.

Between the Lines gives a rare glimpse inside the world of hockey from an unusual perspective—through the eyes of one of the game’s greatest and best-loved officials. With hockey journalist and broadcaster Rob Simpson, Scampy shares his tales of life as an official, both on and off the ice, revealing an inside look at what the players and coaches are really like, what they really say and do, and what the game looks like between the lines.

Full of fun stories, personal perspectives on how the game has changed and evolved, and stories and interviews about Scampy from players, coaches, and other officials, Between the Lines is a captivating memoir of a truly unique life in hockey.
