Retired NHL referee Kerry Fraser, who converted to Catholicism in 1995, recently spoke about his faith and professional hockey at a banquet hosted by Catholic Athletes for Christ, in Washington, D.C.

Michelle Bauman reports:
In addition to the powerful witness of his wife and other people that God placed in his life, Fraser experienced several "mystical events" that he attributes to God's love and mercy.

He developed a deep devotion to the rosary, and began attending daily Mass, despite being on the road frequently for work. 
"I was carrying the armour of Christ with me onto the ice," he said.
