Morning Free Association: Favourite Hockey Names

Guys, I found him- my new favourite Finnish player. Well, he’s not in the NHL yet, but he could be in 2-6 years.

First of all, he’s tall at 6’6″. He could probably eat a sandwich or two because he’s only 198.

Did I tell you he’s a goalie? Well he is. It should have been obvious because he’s a goaltender; Finns simply don’t play other positions. If you think they do you’ve been hallucinating and you should really stop eating those frozen burritos before bedtime.

Really though, the best part of Finnish hockey players are their names. Oh boy, this guy has a tremendously awesome, wonderful name that just trips off the tongue.

His name is Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen.

Truthfully, I have no idea if he has game. I do know that he has a name that seems like it could come not only from the Star Wars universe, but also from Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Dune. I might love this name even more than Jyrki Jokipakka.

Anyway, in my opinion this is the best name today. Feel free to discuss other favourite hockey names below.

Morning everyone!

That’s a great name. My all time favorite hockey name never once played in the NHL, but did score a hat trick against Switzerland in the 2010 olympics: Tore Vikingstad. A Norwegian with the last name Vikingstad?! Spectacular. I also love names that don’t sound like their national counter parts. Sean Bergenheim. Anders Bjork etc

My favourite one of those is the Sri Lankan cricketer Angelo Mathews. Fits right in there with Pramodya Wickramasinghe, Kapila Wijegunawardene and Kosala Kuruppuarachchi!

You need Shattenkirk in there to be team captain.

Yuck, hope it heals up soon. If SatanDad so much as looks at poison ivy he gets a horrible rash.

What up, my ninjas?
Hockey names. I love me some hockey names.
Garth Butcher is still the greatest hockey name of all time! Sergio Momesso is also on my list.
Minor leaguer John Mirasty deserves mention due to his nickname – Nasty Mirasty. Check out his fights on YouTube. Dude was insane!!!!
I also loved all the old timely names – Dit Clapper, Pie McKenzie,
Dishonorable mention for Stu Grimsom – the Grim Reaper.
The infamous knee felt pretty good through 5 periods last night. Then it got tired and I limped through period 6. Range of motion was good! A definite plus.
Also, after I waved off a goal for goalie interference, player A said “that was a goal in my book.”.
Me: ” that’s the book that came with a box of crayons, right?”
I’ll be over here, trying to find the door, thanks.
Go, Preds , Go!!!

I hope the players got a laugh out of that!

Man, I want you to ref one of our C2 games so bad.

I remember “Nasty” John Mirasty from his time in the KHL. He was on a team made up largely of North American goons – Kip Brennan (another good name!) and Jeremy Yablonski were there too, and their coach was former Bruin Andrei Nazarov, who used to get involved in the fights as well sometimes!

Good news about the knee!
