The Hockey Rants Glossary

Bloggers tend to have their own nicknames and vocabulary that they use. Sometimes it's regional, other times it's just a personal style. It adds flavour, much like white pepper and Vegemite.

In my case, I have quite a few nicknames and terms that I like to use that might be confusing or new to most people.

So, here is an always fluctuating list of terms, nicknames, and other words that you'll find used on this site. Some are 'borrowed', some I created myself, and some are common usage. Feel free to use these yourself.

"Hepatitis Boy" is the most obvious one, but it still made me laugh the hardest.
I prefer Mickey Mouse McGoo for Mick McGeough. (But I love the first one on your list! LOL!!)
A couple made up ones from me and a friend..

Black Knight - Anson Carter
Alex Bald
Deadbeat- Adam Deadmarsh
Hedge Duck - Milan Hejduk
Bum Dart- Nolan Baumgartner
Buzz Lightyear- Teemu Selanne
aHh yes, Alex Bauld (Bald), I forgot about that one.

As for Deadmarsh, he's just KO'd ;)
This one made me laugh:
Chocolate = John LeClair

May I add one from my household?
Tittysmacky = Nittymaki
Tittysmacky??? 0_o

That certainly has a good ring and flow to it. I'll try and adopt it, especially around my girlfriend, the Flyers fan ;)
Glad to's our favorite.
Captain Hook - S. Gonchar (he has probably been called for more hooking penalties then any d-man in the league the past 2 years)

- Jon
Wasn't Chewbacca called captain hook also?
We have a bad habit of calling Teemu Selanne "Team Man Salami"
"Hepatitis Boy" for Patrik Elias is too wordy... what about "Liver Boy" instead?
here are a few more:

Scott Niedermayer : Nieds
Brian Gionta: The Rochester Rocket
