I conjured up what was to be known as RJ after an intense night of studying during my Jr year of College. We had just acquired him off waivers and he put up a sick multi pt game playing with Ilya. I got inspiration from the name from this meme from 4chan and this Southern fraternity website I peruse from time to time



Its kind of cool to know that something I made while being intoxicated was able to take off and transcend fan bases. I'm really glad he's producing in Boston and I've been rooting for y'all this post season.

That's not his nickname. No one actually calls him that except for 2-3 people on this board. People call him "Pevs", and I've heard "The Pevs Dispenser" several times. Hopefully the Boston fans can refrain from using the stupid "Raptor Jesus" nickname. It makes absolutely no sense.

I thought it was pretty awesome and way better than the standard Hockey Nickname Generator.

I call him Pevs and on occasion, Pevs Dispenser but people on here call him RJ so I had to ask as I, along with others had no clue where it came from. Thanks for clearing it up!

The fact that is makes no sense is what made it fun and why it caught on....

I never post on these boards, but I'm a huge Thrashers fan and I lurk. Anyway, I have a picture up on Flick or Peverley with the name "Raptor Jesus" as the title and I get like 5 hits a day of people searching for this question/answer on google haha

I love the nickname and think it's hilarious. I always thought this was Pevs' Raptor Jesus face too...



Go Thrashers!

Raptor Jesus is the greatest nickname ever.

If I'm not mistaken, I had heard that Peverly is aware of the nickname and thinks its hilarious. Any longtime ATL fans want to comment on that?

He's aware.

I was talking with Rich and his wife after a game back in Atlanta and told him the internet calls him "Raptor Jesus". They both laughed as they were already aware, I told him it was the ultimate honor and he agreed .

But yes he's aware and is a fan.

If not for Raptor Jesus and that other guy the Thrashers inexplicably let go (Recchi) the Bruins don't win game 6 and we spend the rest of our lives listening to Vancouverites gloat.

For that reason alone, Boston must embrace Raptor Jesus and make sure a statue of him blessing Bobby Orr is erected in front of the arena.

Pro Hockey, the biggest if not the only, NHL dedicated magazine in here in Sweden had him as Rich "RJ" Peverley when they a small column about each player on the Bruins. I'd have to admit that made me giggle.

Let it be known that there is a contingent of Boston fans on the internet who refer to RJ as "Peverley Hills Ninja." That is all.

love it. I think all the buzz of "Raptor Jesus" stopped us from searching for a new handle for the man.
