Obscure hockey references

Today on Howard Stern's show, Gary Busey mentioned Chris Chelios. I guess thats the hockey equivalent of Hemingways " I should like to go fishing with the great DiMaggio".

Try to get a hockey player to mention a great author like Hemingway.

Now that'd be obscure.

Chris Chelios was recently mentioned on the Carson Daly show by Jessica Alba, I believe.

Mario Lemieux is mentioned in the song Keep It Rollin', by A Tribe Called Quest.

quotes from Swingers while they were playing Blades of Steel or some NHL nintendo game:

Trent: I'm gonna make Gretzky's head bleed for super fan 99 over here.
-----------
Trent: Y'know, it's not so much me as Roenick; he's good.




Quote from Mallrats

Rene: What are you doing? You promised me breakfast.
Brodie: Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ's sake. It's only the second period and I'm up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

Kevin Smith puts a lot of hockey references in his movies.

I'm pretty sure all of them have had them in one way or another.

I forget the exact quote or reference but in an epsiode of M*A*S*H, an unimpressed Winchester said of a situation "Isn't that the same as being the best hockey player in Ecuador?"

Three Simpsons references:

1. Homer Simpson: "I've got more trophies than Wayne Gretzky and the Pope combined."

2. There was a reference to the 1976 Philadelphia Flyers in one of the Halloween episodes.

3. When Bart's teacher was having dating woes, Gordie Howe's photo and stats were shown at the end of the episode.

The Flyers were the jury from hell when Homer sold his soul for a donut to the Devil, Ned Flanders.

Hockey's mentionned in the Bob Dylan Chronicles. He's speaking of mid 60's New York and reported that the Rangers beat the Hawks at the Gardens that night. Vic Hadfield got 2 goals.

on the late show with Craig Kilbourn , he used to occasionally play the Hartford Whalers fight song from the '80s (I think it was from the 80's) -- who knew Hartford had fight song ??

Ferris Bueller's buddy wore a Gordie Howe jersey.

There was a Seinfeld episode centered around a Rangers/Devils playoff series.

A very obscure reference - a 1980's movie called Vibes starring Jeff Goldblum and Cyndi Lauper - Jeff Goldblum's girlfriend has an affair with a hockey player.

Simpsons also had references to Kozlov (Lisa yelled something at a player named Kozlov during a game)

and of course4 when Bart responded to Mrs Crabapple's personal ad and needed a Photo, he took a picture of Gordie Howe.

Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor from Home Improvement had a love for the Wings, of course. There was the episode where they went to a Wings game and Wilson ended up winning a massive 50/50 pot right after he switched seats with Randy.

Brass Bonanza ... they played that song after every goal.

I'm sure fans of the Bruins, Sabres and Habs hate that ****ing song.

Not an obscure thing, but one of the Austin Powers Movies had a news flash as it was announcing that Dr. Evil was going to jail and the ticker along the bottom said the Leafs won the stanley cup

That (the first one you listed) was the hockey-stick-with-termites episode:

you know guys... hockey's actually a pretty popular sport. I mean, if this was "obscure hockey refrences in Ghana", then we might have a worthy thread....


it's especially silly when talking about things like Kids in the Hall Skits... i mean, they're Canadian, of course they're going to mention hockey at least once in a while.

I think one of the characters in the 2nd Austin Powers film was called Keon, after Mike Myers' favourite player.
