I really love medieval fantasy (The Tortall books, A Song of Ice and Fire, etc.), and I love hockey. I recently got an idea of: “Why not make a sigil banner for each NHL team?!” So I did! 

I told myself that I’d do one per day, but I kinda got on a roll and ended up finishing the project in a week!hahaha

Overall, I’m super freaking happy with the final piece. Hoping to get it possibly printed as a big poster soon! Maybe I’ll do some banner for former teams like the Nordiques and the Whalers too??? 

Prints available on my ETSY SHOP

Alex Ovechkin wears tribute to fallen Lokomotiv players under his jersey
I have to give us a failing grade, which is rating harshly. … But we’re past now saying making the playoffs makes for a successful season, and we want to win a Stanley Cup and we haven’t done that.

Alex Ovechkin stalks his prey.
See: Tom Wilson scores first NHL goal. Tom Wilson records first NHL assist. Caps beat Isles 6-2.
This is the way it’s supposed to be. The world’s two best players are at the top of the league again: one healthy, the other unleashed for the first time in years.

Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said:
“Shut up, have you ever played the game?”

When the press turned his way, he then added:
“I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”
