<p>Mick McGeough (pronounced mik-GOOH) (born June 20, 1957, Regina, Saskatchewan) is a retired National Hockey League referee, who wore uniform number 19 (now worn by Gord Dwyer) from the 1994–95 NHL season until his retirement. His NHL career began in 1987. McGeough was one of the last NHL officials to officiate NHL games without wearing a helmet when he was on the ice. In the 2006–07 NHL season, McGeough was forced by the NHL to wear a helmet on ice, as it was the first season that dictated that all on-ice officials had to do so. He now is helping the NHL bring up new recruits from the AHL. Entering the 2007–08 NHL season, McGeough had officiated 1,023 regular season and 63 post season games.
His last career regular season game was the Anaheim Ducks – Los Angeles Kings contest on April 5, 2008.
He is the older brother of NHL player Jim McGeough, formerly of the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals.</p>
