Top Social Media Posts For December 2019

The expectations are high for a number of NHL teams entering 2020, but Hooked On Hockey Magazine puts that discussion aside for December’s top social media posts from around the hockey community.

Former Junior teammates Brendan Lemieux and MacKenzie Blackwood squared up in friendly fashion at center ice to show their support for the great Dale Hawerchuk.

“Baby” Yoda posts and memes mastered their Jedi-Knight skills to the point where the force led them to NHL teams’ social accounts.



New Jersey Devils defenseman, P.K. Subban, seems to be joying the festive atmosphere the New York City market offers around this time of the year.

Arizona Coyotes forward Phil Kessel returned to the Steel City for the first time after being traded to the desert this past offseason. It’s fair to say Kessel’s return to his former club went over better than his returns to Boston and Toronto.

NBC Sports put hockey fans on the hot seat with this tweet.



Former NHL All-Star, John Scott, is still making a difference for the hockey community over social media, clearly.

How about this cool throwback photo of the Kariya brothers facing-off for the first time during the NHL careers back in 1999-00.


The NFL’s New Egland Patriots were even jabbed at North of the Border after their filming scandal.

Here’s another cool throwback featuring former goaltending great, Billy Smith.

We’re all hoping for the best, Oskar Linblom. Here’s a nice tribute by the Philadelphia Flyers for their teammate.


The Washington Capitals are clearly having fun this season, especially after a record-setting start to 2019-20.

Fans probably won’t ever see this tactic to move the puck up the ice in the NHL, right?

There’s hope in Arizona for the Coyotes for the first time in a long time. The ‘Yotes are also hopeful Auston Matthews ends up going back home one day…


Hockey fan or not – everyone should envy this beautiful shot…


This fan was clever and tough, to say the least.

How about this goaltender setup? Henrik Lundqvist – takes notes.

Speaking of “taking notes,” there’s a reason that Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin has won three Stanley Cups.


Pierre LeBrun never disappoints over Twitter.


Here’s another sweet goaltender setup and this time from Finnish native, Antti Raanta.


Darren Dreger caught everyone off guard with his humorous, yet mean comment.

New York Islanders forward might have been dared to get Anna Kendrick’s attention.

He succeeded…

NBC Sports has apparently stepped up their social and graphics game for December – the network made HOHM’s list this month on two occasions. Well done!
