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 hockey 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 game terms or rules. You could also use names of actual teams or even coaches. The possibilities are endless!
