Hockey quotes by Herb Brooks
#1. What is courage? Let me tell you what I think it is. An indefinable quality that makes a man put out that extra something, when it seems there is nothing else to give. I dare you to be better than you are. I dare you to be a thoroughbred. #Quote by Herb Brooks

Hockey quotes by Annie Dillard
#15. Father had stretched out his long legs and was tilting back in his chair. Mother sat with her knees crossed, in blue slacks, smoking a Chesterfield. The dessert dishes were still on the table. My sisters were nowhere in evidence. It was a warm evening; the big dining-room windows gave onto blooming rhododendrons.

Mother regarded me warmly. She gave me to understand that she was glad I had found what I had been looking for, but that she and father were happy to sit with their coffee, and would not be coming down.

She did not say, but I understood at once, that they had their pursuits (coffee?) and I had mine. She did not say, but I began to understand then, that you do what you do out of your private passion for the thing itself.

I had essentially been handed my own life. In subsequent years my parents would praise my drawings and poems, and supply me with books, art supplies, and sports equipment, and listen to my troubles and enthusiasms, and supervise my hours, and discuss and inform, but they would not get involved with my detective work, nor hear about my reading, nor inquire about my homework or term papers or exams, nor visit the salamanders I caught, nor listen to me play the piano, nor attend my field hockey games, nor fuss over my insect collection with me, or my poetry collection or stamp collection or rock collection. My days and nights were my own to plan and fill. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Hockey quotes by Sean Burke
#16. It's too easy when you're not winning to look for excuses and point at others for reasons. You ca say 'Oh well, it's this guys fault or they don't do this well', or you can say 'I've got to play better and contribute more'. You've got to find another gear and come up with big games. #Quote by Sean Burke
Hockey quotes by Jim McKenny
#17. Half the game is mental, the other half is being mental. #Quote by Jim McKenny
Hockey quotes by Sarah Palin
#18. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids' public education better. #Quote by Sarah Palin
Hockey quotes by Mike Milbury
#19. I don't like being mediocre. I won't be. #Quote by Mike Milbury
Hockey quotes by Eric Lindros
#20. People on the streets are ready for hockey. #Quote by Eric Lindros
Hockey quotes by Elle Kennedy
#21. And I guess my sister is on to something about her universe theory, because an hour after my call with Parklane Academy? Allie's agent phoned with news that made her shriek so loud that Garrett heard her all the way from his shower and flew into my room buck-naked, armed with a hockey stick... we assured him everything was okay - and commented on how pretty his dick looked #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Hockey quotes by Stu Grimson
#22. The great thing about hockey players is that they are able to separate the on-ice from the off-ice and not let the latter distract them. #Quote by Stu Grimson

Hockey quotes by Gabe Polsky
#26. What I found interesting about Slava Fetisov was that he went through three different generations of Soviet hockey. In the late 70's, he experienced the Miracle on Ice, and then in the 80's became with his teammates the Russian Five, the most dominant team in the history of hockey, and then helped bring down the hockey system when the Soviet Union collapsed and became one of the first players to play in the NHL, and then ultimately came back to Russia. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Hockey quotes by Kirk McLean
#27. It is pretty tough for a goalie when you look at it. You're always the last line of defense. If you let a goal in, you can't go to the bench and hide between the guys or anything #Quote by Kirk McLean
Hockey quotes by Michael Wilbon
#28. Football can stand parity better than any of the other sports, I think. Baseball, basketball and hockey need a defining team, in essence to frame the season. Football? Not so much. #Quote by Michael Wilbon
Hockey quotes by Bob Cox
#29. About 4000 men, women and teenagers regularly venture out to play a game in -20 weather and stinging prairie winds. Bundled in sweaters and snow suits, balaclavas on their heads and suction cupped shoes on their feet. They slip and slide across the outdoor hockey rinks chasing a soft rubber puck in the Sponge Hockey Capital of the World. #Quote by Bob Cox
Hockey quotes by Emil R. Salvini
#30. The legendary Princeton team (Hobey Baker) played 120 minutes of no-substitute hockey in less than 24 hours, eighty of those minutes shorthanded, and remarkably defeated all challengers. #Quote by Emil R. Salvini

Hockey quotes by George Vecsey
#33. Some anthems are great for sports. You've got the Russian national anthem ... 'O Canada,' how wonderful is that for hockey ... but I chose the Italian national song because at my first World Cup, I saw the Italians play four times, and they won all four times - they won the championship. #Quote by George Vecsey
Hockey quotes by Janet Evanovich
#34. I exchanged my flannel shirt for a Rangers jersey and zapped the television on. Probably I should make more phone calls, but the Rangers were playing and priorities were priorities. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Hockey quotes by Douglas Coupland
#35. Canadian winters are long. Life is hard and so is ice. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Hockey quotes by Vincent Piazza
#36. I applied a lot of the same principles I used in hockey into my acting. I might have had some naive ambitions of making the NHL, but thank God, playing hockey gave me a good foundation for everything else. #Quote by Vincent Piazza
Hockey quotes by Sidney Crosby
#37. It's tough, it's not the scenario that we wanted for sure. I thought our desperation was there, we worked hard, but it was one game, a lot can happen, they're a good team, and unfortunately we didn't win. We had some bad bounces, and in one game those make a big difference, and unfortunately it didn't go our way. But if we play hard like that, we play desperate like that and control the puck the way we did down low, I like our chances against any team. #Quote by Sidney Crosby
Hockey quotes by Wayne Gretzky
#38. A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be. #Quote by Wayne Gretzky
Hockey quotes by Henrik Lundqvist
#39. Sometimes it just feels like the only thing you do is play hockey and eat. #Quote by Henrik Lundqvist

#40. Sports like baseball, basketball, and hockey develop muscles. That's why Americans have the strongest eyes in the world. #Quote by Robert Orben
Hockey quotes by Phyllis Theroux
#41. My nose remembers more than my eyes. The sharp oily smell of eucalyptus combines with afternoon dust from the hockey field. But my heart feels the different then and now. #Quote by Phyllis Theroux
Hockey quotes by Wayne Coffey
#42. The men were famous once. Some of them still are. They were the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and Brooks had brought them together, 24 summers before. He had picked them and provoked them and pushed them, sometimes irritating them and often infuriating them by his hardness and his aloofness, his scathing rebukes and his unrelenting mind games. #Quote by Wayne Coffey
Hockey quotes by Robin Williams
#43. I believe Ronald Reagan can make this country what it once was ... a large Arctic region covered with ice. #Quote by Robin Williams
Hockey quotes by Catherine Gayle
#44. Meaning I want to put words to it. I want to give it a name. I'm not okay with kissing you and holding you, being by your side for all the things a boyfriend would be there for, without it being understood in no uncertain terms that that's what I am to you. I wan us to be a couple. I want to be by your side though everything that's coming, to hold your hand when you're scared and pick you up when you're weak. I want to know that you're not going to run to some other asshole when we disagree or when I try to make sure you do what we both know is the best for you. I wan you to run to me, even if I piss you off. Because I will piss you off. Because I love you. And because you love me. And because I can't go one more day without being able to tell you that as often as it comes to mind, which is about a dozen times a minute. - Jamie Babcock #Quote by Catherine Gayle
Hockey quotes by Glenn Turner
#45. As a kid in New Zealand, you play cricket in summer and rugby in winter. I played cricket and hockey. Not rugby. I wasn't brawny enough for it. Or silly enough, perhaps. #Quote by Glenn Turner
Hockey quotes by Toni Aleo
#46. But remember, Kacey has a temper and she's crazy protective of you so if you need bail money, let me know. #Quote by Toni Aleo
Hockey quotes by Rick Jeanneret
#47. Oh brother we are not worthy! #Quote by Rick Jeanneret
Hockey quotes by Gabe Polsky
#48. I don't want to get into being too hockey centered, but I just felt like the late 70's and 80's into the 90's was the right time period to tell the story. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Hockey quotes by Mark Messier
#49. Like I said, a 30-year-old hockey player, even when I came to New York when I was 30, I was on the downside of my career, pretty much the end of my career. #Quote by Mark Messier
Hockey quotes by Mike Weir
#50. The only other time I can recall my dad getting upset at me was when I missed a hockey practice. My parents were away, so my buddy and I decided to skip it. I never told my dad about it, but he found out from the coach. #Quote by Mike Weir
Hockey quotes by Kevin Bleyer
#51. Never mind what makes Canada's constitution so special. Probably something to do with hockey, or the inalienable right to poutine, or securing the blessings of Rick Moranis. #Quote by Kevin Bleyer
Hockey quotes by Bobby Knight
#52. We should not have to push you to work hard, you should work hard because you want to be a great player. #Quote by Bobby Knight
Hockey quotes by Chris Hill
#53. Hockey and cooking are similar in so many ways, especially if you are a player-coach, the guy in charge on the ice, a role I would closely relate to that of a chef in the kitchen - they are both contact sports.

You've gotta keep your head up, keep moving and communicate well. Even though you might be the leader in the kitchen or on the ice, you need to understand that that you're part of a working machine and that machine stops working if one of the pieces isn't working in unison with the others. I learned from a very young age the importance of being part of this team dynamic and how hard work can take you to so many different places.

(Chef Duane Keller) #Quote by Chris Hill
Hockey quotes by Bill Bryson
#54. And let's face it, the French Army couldn't beat a girls hockey team #Quote by Bill Bryson
Hockey quotes by Brett Hull
#55. I'm not dumb enough to be a goalie. #Quote by Brett Hull
Hockey quotes by Josh Peck
#56. I do hang out with girls, I do relax. But I am a hermit sometimes and get a bit too introverted, too 'Jean-Paul Sartre' and intellectual in my head. And it's like a Kafka novel in there, things get nuts. Then I have to remind myself to get out and I will go and play ice hockey with my friends. #Quote by Josh Peck
Hockey quotes by Ron Francis
#57. I played my age. Not bad. #Quote by Ron Francis
Hockey quotes by Pat Burns
#58. Toronto was a great place to work, a fun place to work. People were so hockey-oriented, hockey-minded, without being too critical. In Montreal, they got downright nasty sometimes. #Quote by Pat Burns
Hockey quotes by Sam Kean
#59. Rope-a-dope boxers and quarterbacks and hockey enforcers continue to shake off concussions on the theory of no blood, no harm. But each concussion effectively softens up the brain and ups the chances of more concussions. After multiple blows, neurons start to die and spongy holes open up; people's personalities then disintegrate, leaving them depressed, diminished, suicidal. Four centuries have passed, but macho modern athletes* might as well trade pads for armor and go joust with #Quote by Sam Kean
Hockey quotes by Marv Albert
#60. As much as I enjoy TV, I've always loved radio. And I love doing the NFL games, the Monday night games, on radio. Because you are the game. I really enjoyed calling basketball and hockey on the radio, but the presentation is more specific - you're talking all the time. #Quote by Marv Albert
Hockey quotes by Godfried Danneels
#61. Global warming has melted the polar ice caps, raised the levels of the oceans and flooded the earth's great cities. Despite its evident prosperity, New Jersey is scarcely Utopia. #Quote by Godfried Danneels

Hockey quotes by Brad Goreski
#63. You have to realize I grew up in a real hockey town. And there I was wearing bow ties and watching the gayest movies on the face of Earth, like 'Clueless.' #Quote by Brad Goreski
Hockey quotes by Pat Burns
#64. Coming to another hockey Mecca like Toronto makes you a better coach. I want to have fun again. I want to make it fun for everybody, and it's fun when you win. #Quote by Pat Burns
Hockey quotes by Thierry Henry
#65. Baseball and American football and hockey are all ahead because they have a history. The MLS is kind of new. So hopefully, in time, and with players coming and trying to develop the game, and the U.S. team also doing well - at the last World Cup, they finished above England and created some buzz. #Quote by Thierry Henry
Hockey quotes by Milt Schmidt
#66. Milt was one of the men who discovered Bobby Orr. He once said that if a player comes along who is better then Bobby Orr, may the Good Lord let me be alive to see him because he is going to be one hell of a player to watch. Enough said. #Quote by Milt Schmidt
Hockey quotes by Toni Aleo
#67. I think I need to give you a hockeymacation."
"Hockeymacation?"
"Yes, I am going to school you in the art of hockey"
"What! Seriously?"
"Yes, you need to be educated. #Quote by Toni Aleo
Hockey quotes by Harold Town
#68. Made up of corallitic accretions and painful increments, lit on rare occasions by bolts of revelation, and then stuffed behind the wainscotting to grope in the mouse-turd dust, art is the equivalent of athlete's foot, at best an exquisite itch, at worst an excuse to stop walking. On the emotional side, it is either masturbation with a hockey glove or a night beneath the sliding moon that shames Eros. #Quote by Harold Town
Hockey quotes by George Vecsey
#69. All our lives are enriched by the leadership and excellence and confidence of female athletes, whether the Mia Hamms and Maya Moores we know or the field hockey, lacrosse and track and field athletes we do not necessarily know. #Quote by George Vecsey
Hockey quotes by Micky Ward
#70. I'm back in Boston. I own an outdoor deck hockey rink, and I own a boxing gym here also. #Quote by Micky Ward
Hockey quotes by Bobby Orr
#71. Growing up, if I hadn't had sports, I don't know where I'd be. God only knows what street corners I'd have been standing on and God only knows what I'd have been doing, but instead I played hockey and went to school and stayed out of trouble. #Quote by Bobby Orr
Hockey quotes by Brendan Gallagher
#72. I heard Rolex makes nice watches. #Quote by Brendan Gallagher
Hockey quotes by Jason Spezza
#73. I was 13 or 14 and I met Donald Trump at a bar mitzvah of a good friend of ours, who's friends with him. He had his girlfriend at the time with him, that Melania with him. He said, 'Hey guys, if you work hard and be successful, you'll get one of these.' I'll never forget that. And now he's married to her. #Quote by Jason Spezza
Hockey quotes by Gordie Howe
#74. Rocket had that mean look on, every game we played. He was 100 percent hockey. He could hate with the best of them. #Quote by Gordie Howe
Hockey quotes by Kate Meader
#75. Straight talk is a virtue. Dirty talk is a goddamn blessing. #Quote by Kate Meader
Hockey quotes by Carl Hagelin
#76. I had more friends on my hockey team than I did on my soccer team. I might have been better at soccer, to be honest. But I think it was more the friendship, and my family was more of a hockey family than a soccer family, so when I had to make a decision, I tried hockey, and it turned out to be a good decision. #Quote by Carl Hagelin
Hockey quotes by Fredrik Backman
#77. You can love something without loving everything about it. You don't have to feel embarrassed about not being proud. That applies to hockey, but it also applies to friends. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Hockey quotes by Wayne Coffey
#78. Hockey is a club that holds its members tightly, the bond forged by shared hardship and mutual passion, by every trip to the pond, where your feet hurt and your face is cold and you might get a stick in the ribs or a puck in the mouth, and you still can't wait to get back out there because you are smitten with the sound of blades scraping against ice and pucks clacking off sticks, and with the game's speed and ever-changing geometry. It has a way of becoming the center of your life even when you're not on the ice. #Quote by Wayne Coffey
Hockey quotes by Dean Lombardi
#79. First of all, it's a curse. Voodoo. As soon as a guy gets put on the cover of The Hockey News, it's like Sports Illustrated. He goes right into the tank. #Quote by Dean Lombardi
Hockey quotes by Elle Kennedy
#80. He looks way too comfortable sitting there on my couch. A blond Adonis with his golden chest and sculpted muscles and perfectly chiseled face. If the hockey thing doesn't work out for him, he ought to consider going into modeling. Dean Di Laurentis oozes sexuality. He could slap his face on a laxative label and every woman in the world would be praying for constipation just to have an excuse to buy it. #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Hockey quotes by Margot Robbie
#81. My hockey is good, but my ice skating is terrible. It's a bit of a mess to watch! #Quote by Margot Robbie
Hockey quotes by Angela Ruggiero
#82. That's the awesome part. Little girls now have a chance to look up and see women playing soccer, basketball, softball and now hockey - and know they can win a gold medal, too. #Quote by Angela Ruggiero
Hockey quotes by Derek B. Miller
#83. There's also a possibility that the landlord is in there right now, wearing women's undergarments. Or a drug addict is inside stealing jewelry.Or a boatload of recent Chinese immigrants without a television watching Russia play Finland in hockey and placing bets over beer.
You have no idea what's behind that door. You can't just pick the options within your field of vision. Reality comes from everywhere. At best, you can narrow down the likelihoods. But in the end, it's not a matter of deduction. It's a matter of fact. One bullet will kill you if you're stupid or unlucky. So at least don't be stupid #Quote by Derek B. Miller
Hockey quotes by Toni Aleo
#84. I love you, Jayden Mitchell Sinclair, I do. But right now , I want to kill you. So just hold my hand and tel l'me I'm pretty as I push your kid out. #Quote by Toni Aleo

Hockey quotes by Curtis Joseph
#87. I'm so busy right now, it's the beginning of the hockey season for my kids. #Quote by Curtis Joseph
Hockey quotes by Thomas Boswell
#88. Terrorism drives out all normal human activity before it, defining life in its own sick terms, if it can. So, a baseball game on a sultry Texas night before a huge crowd, with everyone feeling perfectly safe, is exactly what terrorists hate. Which is why it is so important to resume such athletic rituals - which symbolize stability, confidence and order - as soon as is reasonably possible. #Quote by Thomas Boswell
Hockey quotes by Conn Smythe
#89. Put the kids in with a few old pappy guys who still like to win and the combination is unbeatable. #Quote by Conn Smythe
Hockey quotes by Mike Modano

Hockey quotes by Harry Sinden
#92. The remedy now is two scotches and an aspirin, I think. #Quote by Harry Sinden
Hockey quotes by Peter Lynch
#93. When people discover they are no good at baseball or hockey, they put away their bats and their skates and they take up amateur golf or stamp collecting or gardening. But when people discover they are no good at picking stocks, they are likely to continue to do it anyway. #Quote by Peter Lynch
Hockey quotes by Peter Forsberg
#94. It's been a good hockey life for me anyway. #Quote by Peter Forsberg
Hockey quotes by Kate Meader
#95. We should be in my bed right now. I should be kissing your breasts, sucking your nipples, tasting your honey. I should be sinking inside you slow and hot and so deep that you'll be begging me to make it fast, then make it last. I should be feeling your sweet grip on my cock, and I bet you grip hard, Harper, 'cause you're the kind of woman who takes no prisoners. I should be squeezing that gorgeous ass of yours while I pump in and out, looking for that spot that'll light you up. I need you to know that in another universe, this would be a done deal, and the only thing stopping me from making you mine is that in this universe, my current employment situation stops me from making good on all the dirty things I'm dying to do to you. You understand? #Quote by Kate Meader
Hockey quotes by Jimmy Cannon
#96. Hockey would be a great game ... if played in the mud. #Quote by Jimmy Cannon
Hockey quotes by Ted Leonsis
#97. We can't score goals, we can't stop goals, we aren't hitting, we can't play on special teams ... we all stink. We can try to improve but to do so we will need to make trades. And who would want our players that are underachieving? #Quote by Ted Leonsis
Hockey quotes by John Tortorella
#98. I focus on the dumbness of Hagelin ... He played a hell of a game but that's all washed off from dumbness. #Quote by John Tortorella
Hockey quotes by Charlie White
#99. It was always so nice to step away from figure skating and school with hockey. To this day I'm still a huge fan. #Quote by Charlie White
Hockey quotes by Meghan Agosta-Marciano

Hockey quotes by Joffrey Lupul
#102. Um no, but kind of ... #Quote by Joffrey Lupul
Hockey quotes by Kipchoge Keino
#103. When you stand on the victory stand, you must be able to ask yourself: 'Did I win this medal?' #Quote by Kipchoge Keino
Hockey quotes by Pat Burns

Hockey quotes by Brett Hull
#105. He's the kind of guy who will stab you in the back right to your face. #Quote by Brett Hull
Hockey quotes by Milton Friedman
#106. If the government is to try and ban private consumption of alcohol and tobacco, it must surely ban such activities as hang-gliding, skiing, rock-climbing and so on. Where should it stop? Rugby? American Football? Ice Hockey?
Insofar as the government has information not generally available about the merits or demerits of the items we ingest or the activities we engage in, let it give us the information. But let it leave us free to choose what chances we want to take with our own lives. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Hockey quotes by Ron Tugnutt
#107. All my career I've gone to teams on the decline. I went to Quebec when they were losing the Stastny brothers. I went to Edmonton after they lost Gretzky and Messier. I went to Anaheim when it was an expansion team. I came to Montreal after they'd won the Cup and were headed down. I was beginning to think it was me. #Quote by Ron Tugnutt
Hockey quotes by Jon Jones
#108. I think part of what people are responding to with Lambeau Field is that it's a solid culture. There's so much committed to what hockey means and that's how we feel about football. It's just a great connection between the culture of football and the culture of hockey. #Quote by Jon Jones
Hockey quotes by John Vanbiesbrouck
#109. It's not about what you did yesterday, it's what you do tomorrow. If you rely too much on yesterday, tomorrow is going to jump up and bite you in the pants. #Quote by John Vanbiesbrouck
Hockey quotes by Darryl Sutter
#110. A complacent player is a lazy player, and a lazy player is a loser. #Quote by Darryl Sutter

Hockey quotes by Johnny Bower
#112. I just made up my mind that I was going to lose my teeth and have my face cut to pieces. #Quote by Johnny Bower
Hockey quotes by Patrick Kane
#113. I stickhandle a lot at practice. I watch a lot of hockey, so I try to either pick up something from other players or watch some video and see what kind of move would work in the same situation. #Quote by Patrick Kane
Hockey quotes by Denis Leary
#114. I wanted to be a hockey player. Where I grew up, the basketball courts were rarely used. I was terrible in school and actually said, 'I'm going to be a hockey player.' #Quote by Denis Leary
Hockey quotes by Jesse Owens
#115. If you don't try to win you might as well hold the Olympics in somebody's back yard. #Quote by Jesse Owens

Hockey quotes by Thomas Boswell
#117. In and of itself, sports may be trivial, but as a symbol of the American way of life, it has enormous weight. We are seen, worldwide, as an enormously competitive, enthusiastic people who work as hard as we play and play as hard as we work. When baseball - which has traditionally canceled one day of games for huge national celebrations or disasters - stops play for six days, that has reverberations in the national consciousness. #Quote by Thomas Boswell
Hockey quotes by Jim Flaherty
#118. I still have my teeth. I don't want to lose them at age 61 in some hockey game. #Quote by Jim Flaherty
Hockey quotes by Casey Eastham
#119. My hockey comes first compared to everything else. #Quote by Casey Eastham
Hockey quotes by Toni Aleo
#120. They ave a hockey team, Phillip," Claire said as she unlocked her door and pushed it open.
"That's good. Stay away from the players," he mumbled. Reese rolled her eyes as she followed them in.
"But I like hockey players," Claire pouted playfully.
"Yeah, well, unless you want them to die, stay away. Boys are off-limits. #Quote by Toni Aleo
Hockey quotes by Patrick Chan
#121. I'm extremely well recognized in Korea just because of what I do on the ice, and there is a lack of that in Canada because hockey is our sport and it will be for eternity. #Quote by Patrick Chan
Hockey quotes by Kevin Constantine
#122. All that means is that I'll be 783 years old when I catch Scotty Bowman. #Quote by Kevin Constantine
Hockey quotes by Joe Hockey
#123. I find those wind turbines around Lake George to be utterly offensive. I think they're just a blight on the landscape. #Quote by Joe Hockey
Hockey quotes by Harlan Coben
#124. Tia is too overprotective. You know that." Mike put down his cell phone. "Adam quit the hockey team." Mo made a face as if Mike had suggested that his son had gotten into devil worship or bestiality. "Whoa." Mike #Quote by Harlan Coben
Hockey quotes by Jaromir Jagr
#125. My goal was to play in the NHL, because that is the best hockey in the world. #Quote by Jaromir Jagr
Hockey quotes by Herb Brooks
#126. We need to look at what Europe is doing to get better and try to get better ourselves. We need to make some changes and that can only be good for the game. Tolstoy once said, 'Everybody wants to change the world, but they don't want to change themselves.' So we all have to change our thinking and focus on getting our kids better. #Quote by Herb Brooks
Hockey quotes by Kate Meader
#127. Hockey is not for pussies. Technically, it's defined as a sport. Words like play and game get thrown around liberally to shield its true nature: hockey is warfare with water breaks. In the rink, you have over two thousand pounds of brute force clashing with whittled clubs, a rubber disc that could crush a larynx, and knives attached to feet. Let's not pretend there's anything civilized going on here. #Quote by Kate Meader
Hockey quotes by Conn Smythe
#128. If you can't beat 'em in the alley, you can't beat 'em on the ice. #Quote by Conn Smythe
Hockey quotes by John Mariucci
#129. To his US Olympic team - Every day you guys look worse and worse. And today you played like tomorrow. #Quote by John Mariucci
Hockey quotes by Michael Morpurgo
#130. We all know that the great memories of our childhood are the little triumphs - it doesn't really matter whether that was in writing, art, on the hockey field or on the football field. It's something that makes you feel - 'I can do this stuff.' #Quote by Michael Morpurgo
Hockey quotes by Christopher Poole
#131. 4chan's culture is unique and spreads and draws people in like no other. It's also important to realize that 4chan wasn't some overnight success, and there was never 'hockey stick' - like growth. #Quote by Christopher Poole
Hockey quotes by Mike Richards
#132. Hopefully someone on their team addresses it, because, uh, I'm not saying I'm going to do it, but something might happen to him if he continues to be that cocky. #Quote by Mike Richards
Hockey quotes by Tom Glavine
#133. I love both sports, but the deciding factor was, being a left-handed pitcher, I had a huge advantage in baseball because of that, and I didn't have that type of advantage in hockey. #Quote by Tom Glavine
Hockey quotes by Rahul Dravid
#134. I was in the hockey team in school, played football. One of the challenges for me was to make the team feel better. It helped me evolve, so batting at different positions was never a problem. #Quote by Rahul Dravid
Hockey quotes by Byron Dafoe
#135. Ranger fans are the rudest and they're proud of it, I'm sure. #Quote by Byron Dafoe
Hockey quotes by Barclay Plager
#136. It's not who wins the fight that's important, it's being willing to fight. If you get challenged and renege, everyone wants to take a shot at you. #Quote by Barclay Plager
Hockey quotes by Nicole James
#137. Life should be more like hockey. When someone pisses you off, you just beat the shit out of them, then sit in the penalty box for five minutes. ~ Sandman #Quote by Nicole James
Hockey quotes by Isa K.
#138. This is a completely heterosexual bro-hug that I offer in a totally nongay way to all my hockey brothers. #Quote by Isa K.
Hockey quotes by Richard Dean Anderson
#139. My back has been compressed and operated on, my feet have been surgically cut up, and I have a knee that's just going wacky. So I do my own driving, and I ski and skate. I'm playing hockey again. Anything that immobilizes my feet I'm OK with. #Quote by Richard Dean Anderson
Hockey quotes by Adam Raider
#140. In February 1999, my wife, who is also a Rangers fan, gave birth to our first child. We named her Destiny and made sure that she was baptized in a Rangers jersey. At her baptism, my wife, myself, and my stepdaughter all wore our Rangers jerseys. Years later, as Destiny learned about hockey, she came to me and said, 'Daddy, I like the Penguins. They're cool!' I immediately called my lawyer friend, wanting to sue the doctor who delivered her. God does have a sense of humor." James Valenzano, Maricopa, Arizona Rangers fan since 1970 #Quote by Adam Raider
Hockey quotes by Roger Kahn
#141. Basketball, hockey and track meets are action heaped upon action, climax upon climax, until the onlooker's responses become deadened. Baseball is for the leisurely afternoons of summer and for the unchanging dreams. #Quote by Roger Kahn
Hockey quotes by Wayne Coffey
#142. Brooks wanted to abandon the traditional, linear, dump-and-chase style of hockey that had held sway in North America forever. He wanted to attack the vaunted Russians with their own game, skating with them and weaving with them, stride for high-flying stride. He wanted to play physical, un-yielding hockey to be sure, but he also wanted fast, skilled players who would flourish on the Olympic ice sheet (which is 15 feet wider than NHL rinks) and be able to move and keep possession of the puck and be in such phenomenal condition that they would be the fresher team at the end. #Quote by Wayne Coffey
Hockey quotes by Gary Ackerman
#143. The media has changed. We now give broadcast licenses to philosophies instead of people. People get confused and think there is no difference between news and entertainment. People who project themselves as journalists on television don't know the first thing about journalism. They are just there stirring up a hockey game. #Quote by Gary Ackerman
Hockey quotes by George Vecsey
#144. It is no fun lining up in your own building - as the hockey players say - and touching the hands of fellow stubbly louts who have just sent you off to the proverbial cabin on the lake. #Quote by George Vecsey
Hockey quotes by Steven Pinker
#145. I like ice hockey. No one is ever going to ask me to write about that as a metaphor for life. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Hockey quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#146. To measure the man, measure his heart. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Hockey quotes by Randy Carlyle
#147. Obviously, we were fortunate to win the hockey game, and we'll take it, because there have been some games that we haven't been fortunate enough in. I don't think we played exceptionally well from any standpoint, other than our first period. And our goaltender really stole the game for us. In all reality, you have to give him credit for the win. He stole the points. #Quote by Randy Carlyle
Hockey quotes by Bryan Murray
#148. We talk about mental toughness all the time. That's the biggest thing good teams have, that they can overcome adversity. #Quote by Bryan Murray
Hockey quotes by Denis Leary
#149. My dad was very much a John Wayne kind of guy, but he was also a great guy, great sense of humor, a real dedicated dad. I don't think he ever missed a hockey game I was in. #Quote by Denis Leary
Hockey quotes by Sarah Ockler
#150. If I let him walk away now, we'll forever be a "just"; Just hockey player and skating coach. Just music swappers. Just friends. A not-quite-almost whose time passed through as quickly as the train, fading into the distance before it even had a real chance at staying, at becoming something more, because I didn't speak up. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Hockey quotes by Chris Osgood
#151. I don't doubt myself ever, but people that don't know me do. I've been playing for 15 years, and have the most playoffs wins in Wings history for a reason, and not because I'm a bad goalie. #Quote by Chris Osgood
Hockey quotes by Gary Bettman
#152. When you take off that sweater, your jersey, after today's game, you will be the last player in the NHL to ever wear 99. You have always been and you will always be 'The Great One,' and there will never be another. #Quote by Gary Bettman
Hockey quotes by Chris Rock

Hockey quotes by Michael Buble
#156. I think I'm a mama's boy who wanted to be a hockey player, who failed, and had to become a singer. I think that I'm a generous, impatient, kind, jerk. #Quote by Michael Buble
Hockey quotes by Chris Pronger
#157. I don't want to get into a 'he said, she said' with the refs ... I'm the he. #Quote by Chris Pronger
Hockey quotes by Ilya Bryzgalov
#158. OK, they fire the puck from the blue line. Chief usually yelling 'block the shot' at the defensemen. They doesn't have the goalie gear, but they have to block the shot. So who is more crazy, me or the defensemen? Who is more weird? #Quote by Ilya Bryzgalov
Hockey quotes by Peter Farrelly
#159. They're happy to be Siamese twins. They feel blessed. But the rest of us have to go through the world alone. And they don't. And because they have this great attitude, they have a lot of friends. They were the kings of the prom. You know, they were in the state championship hockey team. You know, they're the goalie. And it's just they're a couple of winners who happen to be Siamese twins. #Quote by Peter Farrelly
Hockey quotes by Mary Rose O'Reilley
#160. On the first day of November last year, sacred to many religious calendars but especially the Celtic, I went for a walk among bare oaks and birch. Nothing much was going on. Scarlet sumac had passed and the bees were dead. The pond had slicked overnight into that shiny and deceptive glaze of delusion, first ice. It made me remember sakes and conjure a vision of myself skimming backward on one foot, the other extended; the arms become wings. Minnesota girls know that this is not a difficult maneuver if one's limber and practices even a little after school before the boys claim the rink for hockey. I think I can still do it - one thinks many foolish things when November's bright sun skips over the entrancing first freeze.

A flock of sparrows reels through the air looking more like a flying net than seventy conscious birds, a black veil thrown on the wind. When one sparrow dodges, the whole net swerves, dips: one mind. Am I part of anything like that?

Maybe not. The last few years of my life have been characterized by stripping away, one by one, loves and communities that sustain the soul. A young colleague, new to my English department, recently asked me who I hang around with at school. "Nobody," I had to say, feeling briefly ashamed. This solitude is one of the surprises of middle age, especially if one's youth has been rich in love and friendship and children. If you do your job right, children leave home; few communities can stand an individual's most #Quote by Mary Rose O'Reilley

Hockey quotes by Elle Kennedy
#164. So there are pics of Tucker's mighty wang on the internet?"

"I haven't been tagged on Instagram yet, so I'm hopeful they aren't out there. But thanks for calling my dick mighty. We appreciate that." Amusement colors his words.

"We? As in you and your penis?"

"Yup," he says cheerfully.

I snuggle deeper under the covers. "You have a name for your penis?"

"Doesn't everyone? Guys put a name on everything that's important to them - cars, dicks. One of my teammates in junior hockey named his stick, which was dumb because sticks break all the time. He'd gone through twelve of them by the end of the season."

"What were the names?"

"That's the thing. He just kept adding a number to the end, like iPhone 6, iPhone 7, except in his case it was Henrietta 1, Henrietta 2, et cetera."

I snicker. "He should've used the hurricane naming convention."

"Darlin', he wasn't smart enough to come up with two names, let alone twelve. #Quote by Elle Kennedy

Hockey quotes by Rachel Caine
#170. This near enough? Whatcha gonna do, doll girl? Cry all over me?"
Claire hid her eyes as the biker reached out for Eve with one tattooed hand.
No," Eve said breathlessly. "I'm going to let my boyfriend beat the crap out of you."
There was a dull thunk of wood meeting flesh, and a howl. Then another, much harder thunk, and a crash as a body hit the floor.
The biker was down. Claire stared at him in disbelief, then looked past him, to the figure standing there with the field hockey stick in both hands.

Hockey quotes by Elle Kennedy
#173. She laughed. "Let me guess, sex in the gazebo is one of your fantasies?" "Oh, yeah. I've wanted to do this since the moment this damn thing was built." "What, none of your hockey groupies ever wanted to do it in the wilderness of your backyard?" she teased. "I've never brought a woman home before. #Quote by Elle Kennedy

#176. My favorite personal hockey moment was probably when Mike Bossy scored fifty goals in fifty games. He was the first one to do it since Rocket Richard. I was young when it happened, but I remember it very distinctly. #Quote by Kevin Connolly
Hockey quotes by Steve Nash
#177. Basketball isn't as popular in Canada as it is in the US. Hockey is by far the most popular sport in Canada. #Quote by Steve Nash
Hockey quotes by Mariana Zapata
#178. Regardless, his crankiness had hit a level not previously documented in the history of the universe. That was saying something, considering I'd grown up with three older sisters who all had periods at the same time. Because of them, most things - most people - didn't bother me. I knew what it was like to be bullied, and Aiden never crossed the line into being unnecessarily mean. He was just a jackass sometimes.

He was lucky I had a tiny, itty, bitty crush on him; otherwise, he would have gotten the shank years ago. Then again, just about everyone with eyes who happened to also like men, had some kind of a thing for Aiden Graves.

When he raised his eyebrows and looked at me from beneath those curly black eyelashes, flashing me rich-brown eyes set deep into a face that I'd only seen smile in the presence of dogs, I swallowed and shook my head slowly as I gritted my teeth and took him in. The size of a small building, he should have had these big, uneven features that made him look like a caveman, but of course he didn't. Apparently, he liked to defy every stereotype he'd ever been assigned in his life. He was smart, fast, coordinated, and - as far as I knew - had never seen a game of hockey. He had only said 'eh' in front of me twice, and he didn't consume animal protein. The man didn't eat bacon. He was the last person I would ever consider polite, and he never apologized. Ever.

Basically, he was an anomaly; a Canadian football-playing, plant-b #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Hockey quotes by Patrick Kane

Hockey quotes by Dany Heatley
#183. Every country gets fired up to play us. They played well. I thought when it was 2-1 that we had some chances to make it 3, 4-1. He made some saves and we just missed some shots. They got a break on their second, and the third period I thought we had a lot of chances, he made some big saves. We got it done in the shootout. #Quote by Dany Heatley
Hockey quotes by Gary Dornhoefer
#184. They were checking us so closely, I could tell what brand of deodorant they were using. #Quote by Gary Dornhoefer
Hockey quotes by John Katzman
#185. I played street hockey in Riverside Park when I was a kid. I played goalie. I didn't make the hockey team in college, so I played lacrosse instead. I didn't play hockey again for 20 to 25 years, and then my son became interested in the game. I decided to pick it up again. A friend let me play backup on his team. #Quote by John Katzman

Hockey quotes by Avon Gale
#193. Can you spare me the veteran hockey player wisdom?" Lane leaned in again.

"Sure. But let me tell you something, pipsqueak." At Lane's angry glare, Jared kissed him again. "You weren't on my team, and you weren't my captain, but you taught me how to love this game again. You showed me it was ok to think more of myself than I did and believe I could do more than throw my fists around. You gave me back something I didn't even realize that I'd lost."

"You're saying it's my fault you made a sick glove save on me?"

"It was pretty sick. Wasn't it?" Jared agreed, unable to help himself. But he smiled at Lane and kissed him. #Quote by Avon Gale

Hockey quotes by Jonas Gustavsson
#198. Just because you've had one or two of those games, you can't really go back to the next practice and change everything. That's the most important thing in those situations that you don't think too much, you don't try to change too much because then you're going to be in deep trouble, that's what I think. It's all about keep working on what's been successful for you and keep believing what you're doing is the right thing. #Quote by Jonas Gustavsson
Hockey quotes by Chico Resch
#199. Hockey is not a sport - it's a disease. #Quote by Chico Resch
Hockey quotes by Pierre Trudeau
