Nickname Guide

Here at The Hockey Chronicles, we make a habit of utilizing nicknames for hockey players. While the majority are general ones, used by every fan, there are a few gems that come right out of our twisted minds.

Washington Capitals (including Hershey Bears and prospects)

Alex Ovechkin: Ovie, The Russian Machine, The Great 8, Mr. Ambassador

Brooks Laich: Brooksy, Brooksie, Cougar Bait

Mike Green: Greener, Greenie

Other teams

Sidney Crosby: Crosballs, Crosberry, Crysby, Tranny Ass

Henrik Lundqvist: Lundy

Matt Stajan: Delicate Little Princess

Sergei Fedorov: Feds

Milan Jurcina: Juice

The Hockey Chronicle-isms

Middle Aged Man Twins (MAMTs): There are a few scary similarities of the dynamics between Joe B and Locker and the Chronicle Writers; therefore, they are our twins

Sod Farm Trolls: What we like to call the Staal brothers to annoy our Penguins-loving , Staal-obsessed friend

Bourque’d: When you get traded to another team and then traded back to the original team (i.e. Chris Bourque, Milan Jurcina)

Neuvy Face: When someone is always making pained or awkward faces in photos. Named after the constantly “sorry about my face”-ed goalie, Michal Neuvirth. It is similiar to Bouchard face, but less ridiculous

Any suggestions? Feel free to leave a comment!

    Ha! I love your nicknames for Jose Stinkadore! Another one you could also use for Eric Fehr is Fehric. I think I heard someone use that once at a Bears game and I loved it so it became part of my vernacular.
