Don Van Massenhoven (born July 17, 1960 in Strathroy, Ontario) is a National Hockey League referee since the 1993–94 NHL season, who wears uniform number 21.[1]

Before he became an NHL referee, Van Massenhoven was a police officer. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he was a car salesman in his hometown of Strathroy, Ontario.[2]

Van Massenhoven was one of two referees (Dan O'Halloran was the other) during a November 21, 2005 game between the Nashville Predators and the Detroit Red Wings at the Joe Louis Arena where Jiri Fischer suddenly suffered a seizure. The game was later postponed because of what happened and was made up on January 23, 2006.[3]
