There are many dogs across the country that have a moniker given to honor a favorite team, player or just the sport in general. There is nothing more interesting than a dog that has been given a name honoring ice hockey, especially when they are named after a specific player or team such as Gretzky or Hurricane.

Ice Hockey Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Hockey fans rejoice when a new pet joins their household, especially a puppy, since this gives them the opportunity to showcase their fanatic love for their favorite sport, player or team. Depending on the city or even state in which you reside, there will be a monumental amount of dogs named after the star player of the closest team. For instance, a number of Pittsburgh pooches are named Crosby or Sidney, whereas Washington Capitals fans probably have at least one Ovie or Oshie living in their home. Not all dogs given ice hockey inspired names are named after players, especially when players come and go with trades and free agencies. Instead, people choose hockey names such as Zamboni or Puck; they might even go for some of the slang terminology that only die hard ice hockey fans would get like Biscuit, Apple or Grinder. Girls should not feel left out, there are plenty of names that can translate easily to a female puppy. While Shea Weber, a NHL defenseman, is obviously a man his first name can be used for a girl. Other ice hockey terms that can translate to a name for a female puppy include Vegas, Flame and Dot.
