Player nicknames?
 
I was wondering if there is a thread or list of player nicknames. Not what we call players but what the players call each other. For example, I have seen many fans type Ryan Johansen as RyJo but I believe his teammates call him "Joey" or fans type Nikita Nikitin as NikNik but I suspect the players call him something different.

I am wondering about the whole roster...what are the nicknames the players use to refer to all the other players on the team?

Interesting question! Hard to say how accurate the answers would be, here, though.

The general rule I've noticed on how players refer to each other is to take a variation on the 1st syllable of their last name and sometimes add an S, Y, or ER to the end in.

Tyuts
Dorse
Dubi
Brass
Boller
Umby
Wiz
Mase
Bob or Bobs

Its not always the case but that seems to be fairly common among all hockey teams and not just the CBJ.

Yep, it's Joey for Johansen. FWIW, Ryan hates the moniker RyJo.

The players call Atkinson "Biebs" for his resemblance to Justin Bieber.

Joey's BFF calls him "Yoey" FWIW

Aucoin = Oakie or Coiner

So Mackenzie isn't D-Mac...huh. Do Foligno and Nikitin get the same nickname or does Foligno get "Foles" or something like that.

Seems to be some disagreement on what Cam is called.

I like Coiner for Aucoin.
