Demystifying Hockey Nicknames

from the Macomb Daily:
"I'm not sure that I'll ever learn all their nicknames. There are a lot of them in this Red Wings lockerroom." "Don't look at it that way. There are really only a handful of nickname variants." "Nickname variants?" "Yup. OK over there, who's that?" "That's Robert Lang, right?" "No, that's Langer. The 'er' suffix has been a favorite of hockey players for a long time."
continued, and never ask a goaltender named "Killer" how he earned his nickname...
