Potentially the best thing about Snoop Dogg performing at the 2017 NHL All Star Game is that Snoop fucking loves wearing hockey jerseys and we might see him try to rep every single team’s sweater at some point.

a little hockey history: the good friday massacre

The Good Friday Massacre (in French: la bataille du Vendredi saint), was a second-round playoff match-up during the 1984 NHL Playoffs on April 20, between the Quebec Nordiques and the Montreal Canadiens. The two teams already shared a well-known rivalry (nicknamed The Battle of Quebec) but the fighting started as the second period was ending, after an incident between the Nordiques’ Dale Hunter and the Canadiens’ Guy Carbonneau, who was “pinned to the ice” by Hunter. The start of the third period was delayed because it took so long for referee Bruce Hood to tally up the penalties. Ultimately, 12 players were ejected and some 252 penalty minutes were handed out. Many describe this game has more than a just violent brawl but also a real on ice battle between the English and the French.

Fact:

The Ottawa Senators (Original Founded in 1917. Current Founded in 1992.) and Winnipeg Jets (Original Founded in 1979. Current Founded in 2011.) had to get permission to use “Ottawa Senators” and “Winnipeg Jets” as their team name as there were previous teams who used those names which either relocated or left the league.
