The NHL drinking game is here for the official National Hockey League fans that have made curling up on the coach with beers and watching hockey a regular part of their lives. While the 2012-2013 season got off to a rough start after a league lockout, we're prepared to help you make the most of what's left of the 48 game regular season with this drinking game!



Find that favorite spot on the couch, and get that six pack (or twelve/eighteen/twentyfour pack) out and ready to rock. Tune in to your team's game and get ready to get drunk!


The first rule for almost every sports drinking game is to pick the winning team and wager at least a beer-bong or shot on their victory. If you fancy yourself a true Hockey expert, wager extra drinks on the score at the end of each period as well. Finally, we recommend placing a bet on which player will have the most points at the end of the game (using the NHL point system), and give/take drinks based on how many points that player scores!

Now, onto the list of NHL drinking game rules:

  • (1) Drink: For each penalty minute assigned to a player
  • (1) Drink: Each time a player or coach drops a cliche in an interview
  • (1) Drink Anytime someone says "Hockey is back"
  • (1) Drink: For every goalie save
  • (2) Drinks: Anytime a fan shown has a funny sign or costume (this would never work in NCAA basketball)
  • (2) Drinks: If Don Cherry hates on the Russians in a "Coach's Corner" segment
  • (2) Drinks: If at any point an asterisk next to a win is mentioned
  • (2) Drinks: Every time there's a line change
  • (2) Drinks: For every body save made by a player (excluding goalies)
  • (2) Drinks: Anytime someone references the lockout, or calls calls the short season a "sprint" and the regular 82 game season a "marathon"
  • (3) Drinks : Whenever a player gets laid out by a big hit
  • (3) Drinks: For every goal scored (or do a shot!)
  • (3) Drinks: If any mention of the 2012-2013 NHL All-Star Game being cancelled is made
  • (4) Drinks: Anytime there's a fight (Hockey fights are awesome. Period.)
  • (5) Drinks: If a player scores a hat trick

Also, we strongly encourage wagering beers or shots on each on-ice fight that takes place!
