NAVY SEALs used to name some of their operations after NHL teams. There was Operation Red Wings, and Operation Whalers at least. Operation Red Wings could have also been called Blackhawks or Flyers, but since there were units in Afghanistan with those names already they used Red Wings

You know, as i'm thinking about it, there was actually an episode in the final season about a minor league hockey player and they thought his injury was due to fighting. The whole episode was kind of the debate between fighting and hockey and whether or not it's relevant and necessary. I think he ended up signing an NHL contract at the end of the episode or something like that. Obviously their writers liked hockey, they snuck it in whenever they could.

There was even 1-2 hockey-themed shows, including one where he dreams Luc Robitaille is talking to him on the ice.
David Boreanaz was on Conan recently wearing a Flyers t-shirt under his jacket. Probably done it previously as well.

Started making my way through Go On last night and noticed a lot of hockey gear - which is unsurprising considering Matthew Perry is a noted hockey fan and regular at LA Kings games and the show is set in LA.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick

I've heard NJ Devil references on House. Just last week Suits made a reference to the Rangers and name dropped Lundqvist. Apparently Harvey Spector is good friends with King Henry.
