The origin of the nickname(s) (if known) it is noted below. Several of the above are simply shortened names or plays on the current team name or jersey.

  • "Broad Street Bullies" – Philadelphia Flyers: during the team's Stanley Cup runs during the 1970s, their home ice was the Spectrum on Broad Street in South Philadelphia. The team currently plays in the Wachovia Center (which is also on Broad Street.)
  • "Buds" – Toronto Maple Leafs: probably based on the team's use of a leaf as a logo
  • "Cats" - Florida Panthers: the Panther is a cat
  • "Fishsticks" - New York Islanders: the Islanders' uniforms for two seasons (1995–97) featured a logo of what looked like the Gorton fisherman holding a hockey stick. The uniforms actually looked okay, but rival fans (likely Ranger fans) wanted a way to taunt the team and played up the Gorton's resemblance, hence the derisive nickname.
  • "Les Glorieux" (French, "The Glorious Ones") – Montreal Canadiens
  • "'Nucks" – Vancouver Canucks (Local Press and fans)
  • "Les Rouges"Montreal Canadiens: after the red colour of their jerseys
  • "Slugs" - Buffalo Sabres: A disparaging nickname derived from their logo, which resembles a cross between a buffalo and a slug.
  • "Swords" - Buffalo Sabres: A nickname derived from their title, the "sabres", which is a sword
  • "Sabs"-Buffalo Sabres: An abbreviation of the name "sabres".
  • "Le Tricolore" (French, "The Tricolour") – Montreal Canadiens: after the flag of France, which has the same colour scheme (blue-white-red)
  • "Tomales" – Toronto Maple Leafs: Taken from the first two letters of the teams full name ('TO'ronto 'MA'aple 'LE'afS)
  • "Dead Wings" - Detroit Red Wings: Nickname given by the rivaled Hawks fans
  • "La sainte flanelle" (French, "The holy flannel") - Montreal Canadiens : Maurice Richard came back on the ice after being cut to the head to score the Stanley Cup winning goal against Boston Bruins in 1953. His jersey was full of blood.
