In the first of a five-part series, we take a look at game officials.
It is a Friday night in late January. At the ice hall in Hippos, Jyväskylä, an ice hockey game is looking to commence in less than an hour. Two off-ice officials, Marko Paassilta, 49, and Jenna Junkkarinen, 25, join 6D for an interview at the back office, donning their black down officiating jackets. They will assume positions beside the rink ten minutes before first face-off, but have agreed to shed light on their fascinating hobby before it.
