Shick enjoyed a 23-year career as an NHL referee, officiating 1,321 regular seasons, 130 playoffs and two All-Star games, and the 2001 Stanley Cup final between New Jersey and Colorado.
The Port Alberni native refereed his first game on April 6, 1986, between Toronto and Detroit at the Joe Louis Arena and wore the red armband for the last time on March 7, 2009, as Minnesota played Los Angeles at the Staples Centre.

Shick is married and lives in California with his wife and four children.
