North Dakota hockey player scores and immediately gets leveled by a ref

That had to hurt.

Drake Caggiula had just reached the pinnacle moment of his life.

His North Dakota team was facing Michigan in the 2016 NCAA men's hockey tournament on Saturday; whoever won would advance to the Frozen Four. Both teams are two of the best in the tournament. And Caggiula was the first one to score! How much bigger can a moment get?

And then the referee got in the way.

Moment ruined.
