Top NHL social media posts for September 2018

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.

Pierre LeBrun whipped out a classic Matthew McConaughey quote.

While fans have mixed reactions about the Carolina Hurricanes wearing the vintage Hartford Whalers jerseys twice this season, the sweater is worth of the making the cut for this post.


Hockey Hall of Famer, Larry Robinson, proved that his Twitter game is stronger than you think after he congratulated Brian Gionta on a commendable NHL career.

Doug Norris came through in the clutch with this awesome throwback photo. That’s four-time Stanley Cup champion, Billy Smith, in case you’re wondering.

Sports Illustrated arguably has the “chirp of the year” with this recent post directed at Los Angeles Dodgers’ Justin Turner.


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.

Clever, Jackie, Clever…

What was your response to the NHL Network’s Jackie Redmond’s fun tweet?

The Buffalo Sabres posted a cool video on the team’s former goaltender, Martin Biron, sharing his stories about his professional goaltender masks over the years.

The Columbus Blue Jackets wasted no time taking full advantage in promoting the rebirth of their “fresh” alternate sweaters for the upcoming season.

Even Ottawa Senators fans probably won’t deny that they got a good laugh out of this post. This tweet may be up for one of the top tweets for 2018.

Anaheim Ducks forward Adam Henrique always seems to be having fun, and whether or not he’s out on the ice or out on the baseball diamond.

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…

Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson will take to the ice at the pond with this sweet retro mask when the Ducks don their new alternate jerseys this season.

Newly acquired San Jose Sharks defenseman, Erik Karlsson, sent out a fair well tweet to Ottawa.

This photo doesn’t do justice, but Pierre LeBrun finally met Bark-Andre Fleury…we mean “Furry.”

The Colorado Avalanche reminded fans that October was closer than you thought with this cool Milan Hejduk post.

While fans just witnessed what Anaheim Ducks goaltender John Gibson’s “Mighty Duck” mask will look like, here’s his primary mask for 2018-19.

The Detroit Red Wings won’t have much to cheer for this season, but at least the team’s twitter game is strong, right?

NHL dot com’s Dan Rosen must be proud after he received this classic quote from the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin.

Andrew Hammond won’t only look to turn heads with the Minnesota Wild with his play between the pipes in 2019, but his mask for this season will be truly appreciated by the State of Hockey.
