Newfoundland Senior Hockey has seen its share of controversy in the past....
2017 Herder Memorial Controversy
The Clarenville Caribous have a right to protest losing in the 2017 Herder Memorial Championship. In the 5th game of the series, the CeeBee Stars game winning goal awarded to forward Kenny King was an obvious no goal as shown by a video posted on Twitter by Ryan Harding. In the video it is apparent that the puck slide under the net to the left of the Caribous goalie Jason Churchill.

The Caribous goalie immediately headed to the referee to complain but to no avail.
This puts an exclamation mark on a very colourful season for Newfoundland Senior Hockey. There is no word yet as to whether the Caribous organization will appeal to Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador over the controversial goal.
