Cool Hockey Quotes

It's tough being a hockey goon.

"If you want to play hockey, learn to score goals. Otherwise your hands gets so sore."
Gino Odjick

Look out for that puck!

"The puck hit me and broke the nose in four places. It was over on the side of my face. The doctor grabbed my forehead with one hand and gave the nose a push with the other one. Yeah, it kind of woke me up. Medieval times (no freezing) but it worked."
Edmonton Oilers' Domenic Pittis, after getting hit in the face with a puck at the Oilers' morning skate.


Would you want to be stopping a puck flying towards your head at 100 miles per hour?
"The only job worse is a javelin catcher at a track-and-field meet."
Gump Worsley, former goalie.


What about without a facemask?
"If you jump out of a plane without a parachute, does that make you brave? No, I think that makes you stupid. I will never play without the mask again."
Jacques Plante, first goalie in the NHL to wear a face mask while playing hockey.
