I live on the East Coast and love to write about sports such as hockey and basketball.

Funny NHL Fantasy Team Names

The first requirement for a successful NHL fantasy hockey season is a clever, funny, and witty team name. However, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with one that suits your style. If you are having trouble thinking of a name, then you have come to the right place. The following is an awesome list of potential names for your fantasy team. Have fun checking it out and hopefully you can find one that works for your 2017-2018 fantasy hockey team.

Reader Polls

For fun, I will conduct several reader polls in the weeks leading up to the NHL season to determine the most popular fantasy team name on the list, so be sure to check back regularly to vote. The winners will face off in a championship round to determine the best name on the list. The championship round voting will be conducted the week before the hockey season begins.

How to Come up With a Name for Your Fantasy NHL League

As you can see from these examples, a good idea is to take a name of a player and make a pun based around their name. Try to see if their name can fit into something like a film title or famous song lyrics. You may consider a name based on hockey terms or rules. You could also use names of actual teams or even coaches. The possibilities are endless!

      How about this one: "DeKeyser Söze". Definitely a fantasy hockey team to fear.
