This one comes from Ranger fan Chris who spotted “Captain Kikass” during the western conference finals this year. Why Captain kikass? Because he even put the C on the front!

This jersey foul comes to us from reader @captain9nyr who wonders if there was a wedding between Brandon Dubinsky and Marc Staal that nobody told us about. And why did they keep Staal’s number 18? Perhaps it lends insight into who would be the man in the relationship. Sorry Brandon.

I’m staying in Toronto this week for work so I couldn’t avoid watching the Maple Leafs mathematically eliminate themselves from the playoffs. As luck would have it, a reader named Michael actually went to the game and managed to snap this shot for us. He included the following comment:

After missing the playoffs for the 7th straight season maybe he can get it changed to “MR. ELIMINATION”… I’m sure that one won’t go out of style anytime soon

Saw this ebay auction in a tweet by @scottyhockey

I don’t know what’s worse. The Jersey foul itself, the fact that somebody paid $140 for it originally, or the fact that he admits it was a grown man who ordered the #69 on his custom jersey.

Thankfully nobody has yet bid on this jersey foul.

This one was taken by my friend Bryan at the Olympia Club – a special members only bar at ice level at Joe Louis Arena. Something tells me this guy should forego the extra $15 per ticket fee for Olympia Club access and put that money toward a new jersey. Bonus points: Are those jersey tie downs sewn in the back? At least if he won’t get that extra game suspension if he gets in bar fight!

I know it’s the playoffs and all, but I’m sorry Marc-Andre – a football helmet has no place on the ice. You look ridiculous. Also, you’re French Canadian. Do you even know the rules of American Football?

Today’s jersey foul comes to us courtesy of thescore.com where they’ve compiled a nice collection of jersey fouls (several of which have been featured on this site) and made an awesome video guide to hockey jersey fouls. Check it out:

While this is technically a jersey foul, we’re going to overlook it in today’s first ever “Wednesday Win” feature. This style comes from an Etsy store called JerseyMods which specializes in making “little black dress” style jerseys. In our opinion, we could get behind the idea of seeing more ladies wear these things to the game, so we’re going to overlook the obvious foul here and claim JerseyMods to be a win.

JerseyMods - Win!

I saw this on Twitter from @megums and couldn’t resist mentioning it. In fact, I couldn’t do a better job of humiliating this fan than @crownedRoyal_LA does in his blog post. So I’m just going to link to the blog post instead.

While we normally don’t guarantee posts on weekends, we couldn’t resist sharing this one that we saw in the Winnipeg Free Press about one of the best named minor league clubs, the Hersey Bears.

It appears the bears have actually added the Manitoba Moose logo to their jerseys in what can only be seen as gloating over last season. That’s low – even for a minor league team – and for that we give it a minor foul.
