Fans can stop tweeting away with the “is it October yet” posts, with Oct. 1 just one day away.
The NHL is officially back, and the hockey world awaits memorable social media posts for the upcoming season. However, HOHM lists the top NHL social media posts from Sept. 2018.
I think everyone is on the same page as Florida Panthers goaltender and Twitter extraordinaire, Roberto Luongo. Though, the 39-year-old may have opened up a can of warms for when he starts between the pipes, or not, when the Panthers visit Philadelphia twice this season.
Expect the Flyers’ new…”mascot,” Gritty, to haunt Luongo all night in South Philly.

The San Jose Sharks are usually good for at least one social media post on this monthly list. Perhaps this young fan also inspired the Sharks to consider having a Sharks onesie promotional night?

The Arizona Coyotes proved that they’re surprisingly confident entering 2019, especially considering that the team hasn’t clinched a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2012.

The Vegas Golden Knights fan-base proved that it has just as much as humor as the team’s social media accounts, after fans showed full support for Vegas’ newest player — Max Pacioretty.
Let’s see if Alex Ovechkin can entertain all, and thoroughly annoy Sidney Crosby, come June 2019…
On first day of Caps camp last season, Alex Ovechkin boldly stated, "We're not going to be suck."
His message at the start of camp this season:
“Not suck back to back.”
