Toronto Maple Leaf fans still heartbroken from their team's 1993 playoff run take note: former NHL referee Kerry Fraser is a convert to Catholicism and far away from Maple Leaf Gardens.

With the hockey season over, he's brought his laconic wit to Twitter with this comment from the Roman Colosseum:
"Glad I didn't work in original Le Colisée! Legend has it they were a tough crowd?"

(For younger fans of the frozen game: before the Quebec City franchise moved to Colorado in 1995, "les Nords" or Nordiques, used to play in Le Colisée.)

"Burnaby Joe" Sakic, in an undated photo, waits to take a face-off as Nordiques captain.

Follow Kerry Fraser's trip through Rome and Vatican City through the B.C. Catholic Twitter account: @BCCatholic.
