Top NHL Social Media Posts For October 2019


‘Hockey’ Halloween, everyone.

Hooked On Hockey Magazine’s monthly edition for the NHL’s top social media posts returns and just in time for the spooky holiday, which plays host to just two NHL games tonight. So, don’t worry – trick or treating won’t interfere with most NHL cities around North America this year.

Let’s take a look back on October’s top social media posts from around the NHL.

The Anaheim Ducks and Fox Sports added some humor to Anaheim’s pregame show with a Blades of Glory theme.


For once, Philadelphia Flyers mascot, Gritty, was admired by all the other 30 NHL teams, after making an appearance with one of his biggest fans.

Carolina Hurricanes beat report for The Athletic, Sara Civian, hysterically spun a tweet from the National Lacrosse League’s Buffalo Bandits – even the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs’ fans have to chuckle at this one. Well played…

Anaheim Ducks forward, Adam Henrique, is a familiar face to HOHM’s top social media posts. ‘Rico didn’t disappoint with one of his latest tweets, either. No. 14 is notorious for supporting Movember no matter which city he skates in.

Believe it or not, but that awesome makeup job and costume is from the NHL’s best player, Connor McDavid. The only thing arguably missing from this post is the mistletoe.


The New Jersey Devils had some fun in-game with the team’s color commentator, Ken Daneyko. The three-time Stanley Cup champion broke headlines a couple of weeks back after he was caught singing along to Bon Jovi’s, “Livin’ On A Prayer,” over a matinee broadcast.


NBC Sports’ Twitter account posted this throwback for some of the Buffalo Sabres’ former sweaters. They’re all beauts in my mind – what do you think?

The Arizona Coyotes celebrated hot-dog eating Phil Kessel’s 1,000th career game in addition to the team’s Kachina Saturdays.

Goaltenders at any level never have it easy – just ask Montreal Canadiens netminder, Keith Kinkaid…

The San Jose Sharks have always worn some of the best sweaters in the league, but how about these sugar-skull themed jerseys the team wore during warmups for Hispanic Heritage night…


Panthers’ website reporter, Jameson Olive, reminded everyone that Florida sure knows how to have fun, especially with the team’s recent success on the ice.

Again, the Panthers are an entertaining team to not only watch this season but follow…


Former New York Rangers goaltender and now Arizona Coyote masked man, Antti Raanta, appears to still have a great relationship with Henrik Lundqvist and the Blueshirts. Perhaps the Finnish native will end up back on Broadway in the near future…

While the New Jersey Devils were the league’s worst team at the end of October, the organization is killing it when it comes to gaining publicity across North America. Jimmy Fallon made a deal with NJ Devil and lost that bet, after his beloved New York Rangers lost to the New Jersey Devils earlier in the month.


Persistency at its finest…this young Minnesota Wild fan was fortunate enough to get a puck after a fellow fan helped him out.
