Are you a "true" hockey fan?
One of the greatest sports to watch on TV is hockey. The excitement of the fast pace game, the power of the slap shot, the intensity of the technique, and the courage of each goalie as they compete at the highest level. Hockey has never been a sport for the weak and weary. It is a sport of toughness and tenacity, finesse and strength, and skill beyond reason. Watching some of the toughest, most in-shape men skate across the ice with such grace is a thing of beauty to all fans. There are many different ways to describe what is happening on the ice during the game. The game of hockey is known for giving some of the best players nicknames such as Wayne Gretzky's "The Great One", Joe Sakic's "Mr. Clutch", Derek Boogaard "The Boogey Man", and Dominik Hasek "The Dominator". All of these amazing players received these names for different reasons. Wayne Gretzky is known as "The Great One" because he is said to be the greatest hockey player of all time. Dominik Hasek, on the other hand, got his nickname for being extremely aggressive and being able to dominate players one on one. These nicknames are a staple of the game and have been around forever. As the game became more and more popular over the years, the nicknames became greater and created a lingo amongst the players, fans, and commentators. This lingo is an extremely important part of the game because if you do not know it, you do not know the game. Let's see how well you do on this quiz of hockey lingo!
