With the hockey season nearly upon us, it's always fun to take a look at some of the wackiest and goofiest fun facts in the storied history of the NHL. Consider it a hockey morsel to nibble upon so you don't have to read anymore about make-believe girlfriends or doping cyclists.
There were tons of fun things to include in here and I tried to steer clear of the multiple NC-17 rated incidents involving the Stanley Cup. Trust me there are quite a few more stories that didn't make the cut.
The next six months promise to be action packed as 1440 games get compressed into this makeshift season. There will certainly be some headlines and stories that can alter the fortunes of each team as they dash towards hockey's holy grail. Some might be entertaining and some might make you cringe.
I guarantee you that you won't catch any headlines like these in the 2013 NHL season. Then again, with the train wreck of the collective bargaining negotiations anything is possible. Here's to a great season! Enjoy now!
