|Remember Hamr? Now that was nick that was easy to remember|
Hola FHFers and newbies alike! HF29 decided to create this page because his own meth-addled brain cannot keep track of all our awesome Habs nicknames. Thank god for moeman who really helped get this done, even providing explanations.
Blend into the comments section with ease with this handy dandy guide to nicks given by the sharpest comment section on the hockey interwebs. Even in useful alphabetical order! And numbers!
If you have corrections or suggestions, hit us up in the comments.
CURRENT ROSTER 2017/18 and recent callups from Laval
Price, Carey (31) - TFS or TFSTM if you can do fancy coding like moeman. Stands for The Franchise Saviour. 29 is still not sure if the franCHise is saved.
Niemi, Antti, (37) - ime iN! - Niemi backwards because he's the Anti-Niemi
Montoya, Al (35) - Inigo. Prepare to die! Re-watCH the movie ‘The Princess Bride’.
Lindgren, Charlie (39) - CHill. Because he's cool and calm. Or Wonka. Because CHocolate.
Fucale, ZaCH (30) - FuCotU - Anther way to tell off the blowhard in Tronna? Sign me up!
Alzner, Karl (22) - LZ. Landing Zone. Or ALZwell!
Benn, Jordie (8) - BigBenn (BB for short). He's biggish and his name is Benn. Or J&B, because whiskey.
Jerabek, Jakub (28) - JJ. Because he's Dy-no-mite! Dyno, Nitro, TNT, Rubber Raft or any other blowing up related word is also acceptable.
Mete, Victor (53) - Meat. Goes well with BBQ.
Morrow, Joe (45) - (T) - Sopranos reference - I think Paulie Walnuts called Tony 'T'? And it replaces (Y) since we lost our bracketed guy. See ya (T)Morrow.
Petry, Jeff (26) - Dish. Explains itself. If not, go to a CHemistry lab.
Schlemko, David (21) - CHien - sCHlemdog Millionaire...CHien because we parlez vous in these parts!
Weber, Shea (A) (6) - BBQ. Made of steel, all season use, gets hot.
Byron, Paul (41) - LB. For Lord Byron. Classy!
Carr, Daniel (43) - Auto. Beep beep!
Danault, Phillip - Dano. Book 'em DanO! Bilingualism rules.
Deslauriers, Nicolas (20) - Fiver - named for the old guy on our 5 dollar bill.
Drouin, Johathan (92) - Druid. The three goals of Druidism are wisdom, creativity, and love. This guy is smart and creative with the puck and loves to score. The man should be wearing a cloak on the ice.
de La Rose, Jacob (25) - DLR ($). We want to see him make it rain.
Froese, Byron (42) - Freeze. Hope we find out he has ice in his veins. Could also be 'The Answer' because 42...Hitchhiker's Guide.
Galchenyuk, Alex (27) - gCHuk. Goal CHucker.
Gallagher, Brendan (A) (11) - KidA, formerly KidG. SwitCHed to A when he got one sewn on his jersey. 29 still says KidG. Because, meth.
Hudon, Charles (54) - CHud. You got a CH in your name, it's part of your nick. Period. So Chud.
McCarron, Mike (34) - McM. Is this because Big Mac somehow? Not sure.
Mitchell, Torrey (17) - MitCH. Lack of creativity here. We admit it.
Pacioretty, Max (C) (67) - PatCHes. It fits.
Plekanec, Tomas (A) (14) - PleXXXe, SuperpleXXXe. Back in the day he was TurtlepleXXXe. He’s SuperSeXXXy when he scores. The upper-case Xs are optional.
Scherbak, Nikita (38) - LHN. a take on La Femme Nikita. Except, you know, he's a dude.
Shaw, Andrew (65) - SSR. Shawshank Redemption.
CoaCHes / Management
Bergevin, Marc (GM) - DGMB. Directeur Général Marc Bergevin. Also GMGQ because of his snappy dressing or BBB. BBB pops out of his office around trade deadline time and if he sees his shadow, he dives into the bargain bin to find crappy, useless players and we suffer for the next 6 weeks.
Daigneault, JJ (Asst. CoaCH) - ??? (Dyn-o-mite!). 29 will be impressed / happy if someone gets that reference.
Molson, Geoff (owner) - Geoff. Because we are on a first name basis with him.
Muller, Kirk (Asst. CoaCH) - CK. Cap(i)tain(e) Kirk, also a play on CK because he’s hot and smells good.
Waite, Stéphane - (G coaCH) - What. As in "Wait...what?"
CJv2 or CJ2 - Claude Julien
