Top Hockey Commercials

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

Here’s the thing that really stood out while compiling this ranking of the greatest hockey commercials of all time. Few of them involve anyone who is vaguely recognizable.

Oh, sure, there are spots that feature Sid and OV and Teemu and Kovy that ended up cracking the list, but in many, the game itself does the selling. The romance of hockey is the pitchman.

And while most of these originate in Canada, and some may require a certain sensibility to fully appreciate, all of them succeed in celebrating some aspect of the great game.

My favorite hockey commercial is the Molson commercial with Bob and Doug McKenzie interviewing Guy LaFleur talking about how his last name means “the Flower”.

Does anyone know where to find the one with Steve Yzerman watching TV while he rides the stationary bike?  As he flicks through the channels ... “Ooh! Curling!”

I remember when this aired.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yetl55p9LQY

My favorite is where a player (can’t recall if it was Shanny) taunted the supposed dangers of being in the crease.. until he disappeared in a puff of smoke!  I can’t find a video of this commercial, though.

No nike goalie commercials made the cut? The exposed weak glove hand must not have been enough.

Hard to pick the Gordie Howe commercial, but the McDonald’s Miniature NHL Hockey Goalie and McDonald’s Miniature Russian Sniper are among my favorites.
