Top NHL Social Media Posts For August 2018

As August comes to an end, October and the start of the 2018-19 NHL regular season is just around the corner.

With things heating up, HOHM looks back on the top NHL social media posts for August 2018.

The San Jose Sharks are usual suspects for HOHM’s monthly top social media posts, and goaltender Antoine Bibeau took full advantage of the team’s nickname.

Adam Henrique is apparently a hockey jersey collector. The Anaheim Ducks new fan-favorite posted a photo of two sweaters from the 1990’s, and one of which is the Vancouver Canucks’ “flying skate” jersey that the team will don as a 50th-anniversary alternate jersey in 2019-20.

Is it October, yet? Fans can expect to see Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo with a new style once the puck drops in South Florida.

There’s a new Swedish commercial out featuring Erik Karlsson and it left all of North America speechless — be sure to check it out.

New York Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich making a young fan cry because he gave him a stick at a game last season will never get old.

The Nashville Predators Twitter account proved it can still entertain even though it’s the offseason.

Adam Henrique made the list twice, after No. 14 posted this photo of him as a youngster fighting the great Jarome Iginla — who officially retired this offseason.

This tweet from July still made the cut. Newly appointed Dallas Stars head coach, Jim Montgomery, already made his stamp on the league as a first-year NHL coach. He even displayed his hashtag savviness.

The Arizona Coyotes tweeted this awesome montage of Shane Doan. Some may have forgotten that Doan is the only player to have worn No. 19 for the ‘Yotes.

A fan created an Erik Karlsson Ottawa Senators logo, and perhaps if the Sens introduced this as their official new logo and jersey, then the former Norris Trophy winner would reconsider staying put with the team.

Two former NHL teams faced-off on Twitter for the Offseason Social Media Cup.

EA Sports’ NHL Twitter handle chirped the Carolina Hurricanes after they traded Jeff Skinner to the Buffalo Sabres in a questionable deal this offseason.

Michelle Drinnenberg reminded us all that she’s “fluent in hockey and sarcasm,” after her tweet towards Nashville Predators center, Ryan Johansen. Kesler had tweeted at Johansen first about dropping the gloves during the offseason…

Check out this awesome painting of Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin lifting the Stanley Cup.


The Vegas Golden Knights’ Barc-Andre Fleury has some serious competition now with the rise of the New York Rangers Pup.

Former Buffalo Sabres great, Miroslav Satan, met Wayne Gretzky.

Paul Bissonnette has a pretty legitimate point.

Check out this individual effort from this Russian skater.

Another painting made it to the list, but this time it’s New York Rangers goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist.

NHL broadcast, and former goaltender, Darren Pang posted a vintage photo from his playing days with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop recently had some fun with Jamie Benn.
