As a huge fan of hockey, graphic design and ‘The Simpsons,’ you can imagine how excited I got yesterday when an artist who goes by AK47 posted a bunch of NHL logos redesigned to include characters from the classic animated show. They were fantastic and, fortunately, now there’s more of them. Check out the latest
Seeing artists’ unique takes on sports logos is one of my favorite things on the Internet, ‘The Simpsons’ is one of my favorite shows on television, and hockey is my favorite sport. So, with that being said, you can probably understand my level of excitement when I saw that @ak47_studios had worked to redesign NHL
Last week, Daniel Carcillo was handed a 10-game suspension as a result of abusing an official during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Rangers forward received a game misconduct in the first period after shoving/elbowing linesman Scott Driscoll, who was trying to prevent Carcillo from engaging in a fight. The NHL ruled that the incident
The folks at NBC have taken to handing out treats for fans & media following the NHL playoffs this spring. First, they handed out “puckcakes” (cupcakes featuring team logos), which seemed appetizing and creative enough. Their latest treat, however, sounds kind of gross even for diehard hockey fans. The network is planning on handing out
The Stanley Cup playoffs and Game of Thrones are currently throttling the “What’s Hot?” pop culture meter at the moment, so one graphic designer decided to embark on a project that combines the two. Rachel L. Cohen, a Capitals fan and an illustrator from Washington D.C., decided to make a ‘Game of Thrones’ style shield/sigil
Colorado Avalanche 18-year-old phenom Nathan MacKinnon put a quick shot past Minnesota Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper three minutes and 27 seconds into overtime, to give the Avs a 4-3 victory, and a 3-2 series lead over the Wild in the Western Conference Quarterfinals. MacKinnon, the first overall selection in the 2013 NHL Draft, now has
Welcome to the North/South double standard on what it means to be a “real fan.” Tonight the Columbus Blue Jackets host the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This is after Columbus secured their first ever (EVER!) playoff win in game 2 despite beginning play in 2000.
I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an NHL team change their nickname a couple games into the playoffs, but apparently Chicago is ready to become the first. You know, either that or someone in charge of running graphics for CBC fell asleep at the switch on Saturday afternoon. I’ve got to admit, though, the Chicago
As we head into the NHL Playoffs the league took some time to compile all of the best action from the 2013-14 NHL season in one great video. It is hard to not get chills while watching this one.
As we head into the NHL playoffs we reflect on some of the more funny things which happened during the 2013-2014 season. To do that properly the folks at Some Hockey Videos have compiled just under 15 minutes of bloopers which will leave you laughing and sometimes just confused. [Beer Mug Sports]
When referencing John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres, I choose to use quotation marks when calling him a “hockey player” because his level of hockey skill is an embarrassment even for the ‘goon’ label he’s tagged with. He’s basically paid solely to hunt, fight and injure opposing players, which is why what happened to him
You have to think it was the pressure that got to’ Joe.’ There is no other reason that anybody, including my grandma, would guess ‘Magic Johnson’ to the Jeopardy question of “100+ assists in an NHL season has been accomplished only 13 times, 11 by this player?” Poor guy will never live this down, and
