Getting Into Fantasy Hockey
Many of us dream of coaching our own sports team—a dream that many of us don’t actually plan on following through with, of course. Lucky for all of us lazy, unambitious folk, there’s fantasy sports!
Fantasy hockey is one of the many games of fantasy out there and it involves just that, hockey. The NHL to be exact! You’ll build an entire hockey team by going through a draft, ensuring that you draft a couple of each position as well as a good defense. Then you will take your super awesome team and compete with confidence while the hockey games are airing!
Fantasy Hockey Team Names
One of the fun parts of fantasy sports is that you can choose whatever name for your team because you’re the owner! When it comes to fantasy hockey team names, here are a few tips:
Actual Team Names
You can find ways to incorporate an actual team name into your team name if you’re some kind of toothless, diehard fan! Go Lightning!
Likewise, you can find ways to use the names of your favorite players in your team name. Hopefully, you have some of those players on your team!
Who said a kickass name had to be tough-sounding? Picking a funny name, like the Misbehaving Musk Oxen or the Adorable Snowbunnies, will give your team character and let you show more personality in the Fantasy rink!
Puns are actually quite common in fantasy sports team names, and are always a great option in include! Puns can be really funny, especially in those team names that use a player’s name!
Every sport has terms they use for penalties, plays, etc. Find clever ways to use these hockey terms in your team name! You can also consider a few people involved in some kind of fantasy sport. The most common fantasy sport I hear about is football, but hockey is a big one, too!
With these tips in mind, here are 101 example fantasy hockey team names to get you in the rink!

- Hockey movie marathon: Grab some chips and dip and a few pals and host a hockey movie marathon. My person favorites are Goon and of course, since I was a kid of the 90s, the Mighty Ducks! Hail to the Coach, Gordon Bombay!
- Watch a game: Head to the ice to watch a game for cheap in the nosebleed section, or enjoy a game or two of last year's Stanley Cup finals. Either way, watching the action firsthand is a great source of icey inspiration.
- Youtube fails: Check out some YouTube videos of hockey fails. Obviously, you want your players to be more successful than the guys featured there, but you can't argue they're funny as hell to watch!
