Top NHL Social Media Posts for June 2018

The month of June almost had too much excitement take place from the NHL fan’s perspective. Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals not only reached the 2018 Stanley Cup Final but defeated the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in convincing fashion.   The outcome left us all with entertaining videos of Ovechkin and company out celebrating all over the United States with Lord Stanley.

The NHL Entry Draft just took place in Dallas and you can be sure there are few good social media posts from that event, too. Analysts, celebrities and NHL players all took to Twitter to get in on the action for Hooked on Hockey’ Magazine’s top social media posts, so here are the posts from the month of June.

Alex Ovechkin proved that he’ll most likely end up on a future season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars once he is retired from playing in the NHL.

The NHL’s MVP in New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall didn’t hesitate to score with his best 1980’s Kevin Bacon impression at the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas.


The future is now in the city of Buffalo. This Sabres’ creative highlight video will give you more goosebumps than the Bills clinching a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season…well, maybe not, but there’s a lot to be excited about with Buffalo’s 2018 No. 1 overall selection in Rasmus Dahlin.

History shows that Ottawa Senators 2018 first-round draft pick (fourth overall), Brady Tkachuk, has always been a natural goal-scorer at the rinks — no matter the city. Yes, that is Keith Tkachuk’s youngest son back in 2013.

Former NHLer and fan favorite, Bill Guerin reminded us that he still has a sense of humor and is more than likely an all-star foodie, too.

It was a pleasant surprise to see that celebrity-model Chrissy Teigen was not only tuning into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but she also thinks she would be a keeper between the pipes too.

It only gets better…

Yes, goaltender Ryan Miller still has some game left in him.

Ovi celebrating with the Stanley Cup is never going to get old. Yet, the Capitals may have a nice hangover to start next season. Ovechkin kegstand out of the Stanely Cup — done deal.

The NWHL’s Rebecca Russo posted this awesome photo of her and former teammate Tom Wilson (Washington Capitals) crowned champions as professional hockey players almost two decades after the two won what appeared to be a street hockey title.

An Alex Ovechkin Stanley Cup flipbook — now that’s legit.

Sports Logos’ Chris Creamer gave hockey fans a quick history lesson on the Stanley Cup.

NBC’s Kathryn Tappen should have known this was coming with Lou Lamoriello now running the show for the New York Islanders, right?

At last, P.K. Subban made it onto the cover of EA Sports NHL 19.



The New York Mets are in need of an upgrade at various positions and may want to consider negotiating a contract with the NHL Network’s Jackie Redmond, after she displayed her potential baseball skills.


Tattoos, anyone? The Capitals partied in Washington D.C. as if they were still in Sin City.

A church located in D.C. and the NHL Network’s Jamie Hersch are awfully clever.

Fan-favorite and Vegas’ Bark-Andre soon learned that he was the underdog heading into the Stanley Cup Final against Ovie the Bulldog and company.

Nothing beats bagels from the Northeast and from New York…at least the New York Islanders think so.

Hockey fans are probably all happy to not only see Capitals forward T.J. Oshie win the Stanely Cup, but to be able to do so with his father too.

I mean, now this is too funny. Martin Brodeur was not only informed that he’ll be entering the Hockey Hall of Fame in November, but there’s a fair argument here from NHL writer Greg Wyshnyski.

And, finally, this one couldn’t be left out. Ovechkin hoisting Lord Stanley for the first time, but will it be the last time for the Russian superstar?
