Hockey Mom Rushes Ice in Marlborough, Video Goes Viral

A woman at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough has become a YouTube sensation since walking on the ice and yelling at a ref earlier this month.

An unidentified woman in a pink jacket has become somewhat of an Internet sensation since a YouTube video was posted of her walking onto an ice hockey rink and yelling at a ref while players were fighting.

Multiple news outlets have picked up the story, which stems from a hockey tournament held June 1 at .

YouTube user "Foxrun" captioned the video with information that it was filmed at a game between the Boston Raptors and Tribe. 

"A parent walks out on the ice and gets yelled at by the official," the user wrote. "You will see how well the refs do at breaking up the fights."

As of Thursday morning, the video earned more than 116,000 views.

7News went to the rink this week and showed the video to other moms at the athletic complex. The mom, a parent of one of the 15-year-old players, had apparently had enough of the fighting.

Maybe she shouldn't have gone on the ice, but the idiot ref who just stood there holding up the boards and blowing the whistle should have done something to stop the kids from fighting. As mentioned the kids aren't allowed to fight, so he should have taken a more active roll in breaking it up. The other ref had no problem yelling and charging at the mother, maybe if they used the same aggressive behavior(not physical) toward the kids the mom wouldn't have felt she needed to go out there. DO YOUR JOB AS A REF AND I'LL DO MY JOB AS A SPECTATOR!!

I'm torn about this. On one hand, I'm not a huge fan of the whole helicopter parent phenomenon. On the other hand, i agree with "Disturbing." What were the refs doing???

I agree with Dee on this one, but yeah. these are little kids, NOT pro's. there was what, 1/2 the team or better fighting, and the ref standing there blowing his whistle every 30 seconds " oh dear they wont stop what do I do!" that MOM was right to step in and say enough,, ya know as soon as she hit the ice and headed over, the kids stopped. Make that lady the fight ref!!
