More Hockey Terms That Sound Dirty

Because they want to be just like me, the Vancouver Canucks decided to win their divisional championship this year too! Roberto Luongo, for the record, is a god.

In honour of this momentous championship victory, I decided to update my list of Hockey Terms That Sounds Dirty.  These are things that radio and television announcers have said during hockey play-by-play that just sound so dirty.

  • “he’s got good hands”
  • “he stuffed it in”
  • “poke check”
  • “making moves”
  • “gets his stick in there”
  • “scoring”
  • “two on one”
  • “hitting from behind”
  • “he couldn’t get it up”
  • “he got double teamed”
  • “rimmed it back deep”
  • “they aren’t afraid to go into the dirty areas”
  • “he got in there too tight”
  • “he rode him into the corner”
  • “he’s got a big one tonight”
  • “5 on 3”
  • “bang it home”
  • “come from behind”
  • “can’t get one off”
  • “he got good wood on that one”
  • “he reached around”
  • “he took one on the face”
