He got it, put it on and stepped back onto the ice. The ref caught him fairly quickly however.

It was a pretty snug fit too.
Similar thing with Theo Fleury, his jersey had gotten bloodied so some lady handed him hers, and it was autographed all over

I think he ended up putting it on, then realizing it was autographed and giving it right back....he commented later along the lines of "I wasn't going to wear a jersey that I signed"

Another funny moment...Igor Larionov trying to fight Peter Forsberg
after Forsberg punched him in the helmet. larionov got mad, headlocked Forsberg and pulled Forsberg down to the ice with him.
Refs trying to stop the much larger Forsberg from doing some serious damage thereby missed Darren McCarty's turtle clubbing.

During a Sharks Red Wings game (I think in 2002 or 2003) they had a video up on the jumbotron, where they showed a lineup of senior citizens in Red Wing Jerseys passing down some depends on the bench. But the best part was when they showed Yzerman and Shannanhan laughing while watching this from the bench.

I guess they knew they were one of the oldest teams in the league at the time.

That reminds me of the time they showed Shanahan and Lapointe on the kiss cam...Lapointe wouldn't kiss Shanahan so Yzerman came in form the other side and kissed him on the cheek, they were laughing after that one too.

Last night at the Leafs game during a TV timeout they showed clips of all these fans dancing around to to "Man I feel like a woman" by Shania Twain. At the end of the montage, it says "But Matthew Barnaby, how do you feel?" Then it shows a clip of him sitting in the box and he sings along to the chorus of the song. Everyone in the arena burst out laughing, and you can tell he was on the screen at the time they filmed it because he had a huge grin on his face from everyone laughing at him.

Here a couple of oddity stories from the Strange but True department:

One of the most bizarre on-ice incidents ever, involved a player named Abie Goldberry who played as a junior in Quebec back in 1930. He was hit by a puck that ignited a box of matches in his back pocket, setting his uniform on fire. He was badly burned before his teammates managed to put the fire out.

Or the Czech radio announcer who was broadcasting the 1954 World Tournament game between Canada (East York Lyndhursts) and Czechoslovakia. He kept urging his listeners back home to turn out their living room lights. Reason being that they might use up their power ration and their electric radios would go dead during the game broadcast.

The streaker at the Heritage Classic. I was sitting in the row before the fence he had to climb over to jump onto the field, and got to see his genitals scrape the frozen metal in all their glory.

Close second is the Mika Noronen window-washing routine. During an AHL game, a player snapped a shot into what everyone thought was the top of the net. Noronen complained that the puck had actually glanced off both posts without ever going in. The ref sent it upstairs, the goal judge reviewed it, ruling that the puck was in.

Furious at the call, Noronen took his water bottle, skated behind his net, sprayed the glass in front of the goal judge's chair, and proceeded to spend a couple minutes wiping it down.

Both of these memories are fuzzy, but I believe he was given a delay-of-game penalty and a later clip by one of the broadcasters showed that the puck hadn't actually gone in.

This may be somewhat inaccurate, but I saw it on a TSN top 10 months ago:

One Flames game in the mid to late 90's Theo Fleury got his jersey bloodied (how, I can't remember) to a point where the ref demanded he wear a new one for the remainder of the game. Theo got annoyed by this, went to the bench where a female fan nearby was wearing an autographed Fleury jersey, got it from her and put it on. Of course, the refs made him take it off and Fleury had to get a new uni from the dressing room.

Also, during an Oilers game about 5 or 6 years ago, Janne Niinimaa tried to turn around and fire the puck around the boards to clear it. However, he ended up firing it right on Tommy Salo, who gave him a "what the hell are you doing!?" look after making the save.

There doesn't seem to be any definitive video, but during last night's game between Colorado and Los Angeles, Jeremy Roenick started dancing to disco as they were repairing the glass. They even put the spotlight on him as he made his way back to the bench.

Hopefully someone who was there can help me out.

-Kaspar kissing Joe Melichar on the helmet on TO's KissCam
-Every mic in the building picking up Phil Bourques "What a ****ing goal" line in game 6 of the 91 finals.
-Esposito falling and hamming it up in 1972.
-JD's face when he found out the Rangers were picking 15th in this years draft.
-Dale Puriton sucker punching Eric Cairns and then fleeing from him when they met again.
-Stevie Y mimicing Domi's heavyweight signal after a drumming by Probert.
-The Karpotsov bashing.
-Petr Klima's helmet.
-I forgot which player but a Hab giving the media the finger on a golf course and having it printed on the front page.

Scott "The Camrose Comet" Ferugson making a fool of himself on the only breakaway attempt he'll ever get in his NHL career.

I don't recall what slug he miraculously outskated to get the chance in the first place. But not only did the poor guy fan on his shot, he then proceeded to trip over the puck and go crashing into the end boards.

I'm surprised no mentioned the Ruutu/Forsberg incident.

Ruutu was shadowing Forsberg during a game and some how stole his stick from him on his way off the ice on a line change. Ruutu gave the stick to the equipment manager who quickly put it in the pile of stick behind him. Forsberg enraged went over to the Canuck bench trying to get his stick back while Ruutu gave him a smile and a "*** are you talking about?" look. I think Forsberg got a penalty too.

I don't know if anyone remembers this, but D Langkow is my cousin, and his first game ended up being Flyres vs. Leafs and Ron MacLean grabbed him between periods, and it went something like this:

RMacLean: How did your first period as a Flyer go?
DLangkow: Weak
RMacLean: Well they traded Renberg and Gratton for you, how's the feeling of being a Flyer?
DLandkow: Whats to feel? I saw New Jersey on Cops, this sucks.
RMacLean: You're on a line with Lindros and Leclair that period on the PP?
DLangkow: It happens, I was center man on the PP in Tampa...
RMacLean: Well, welcome to HNIC... this is...
DLangkow... (interrupts) [big grin] "Ron, I'm estactic to be here, I did that as my initiation to the team, Therien could think of no better:
RMacLean: (hahahah) well we're off to commercial, Daymond Langkow of the Flyers,
as it cuts off...

DLangkow: I'm number 18 Scott...
