Welcome To My Geeky Hockey Blog – The Home Of Geeky Hockey Jerseys!

Hi there, my name is Dave Delisle, and you may know me from Dave’s Geeky Ideas. I started that blog to cover a wide array of topics, and I will continue to do so there. Dave’s Geeky Hockey (which is unpleasant to say aloud) will function as a companion blog of sorts. Its purpose: all things hockey for the geeks who want to taint* the game.

The second blog is because my love of geek culture began to assimilate another love of mine – hockey. This resulted in many geek/hockey abominations*, mostly in the form of hockey jersey designs. Redditors then clamored for these designs, and Rinkgear was able to cater these team orders.

The hockey jersey orders were taking over in popularity, to the point where I’m starting to plot a course for orders which would take place months from now. It’s always troubling (and painful) when I have to think that far ahead.

This blog will be dedicated to geeky hockey jersey designs, jersey team orders, hockey ideas, and the odd hockey rant. All the announcements, news, and updates regarding jersey orders will take place here. Bookmark this site — make it so.

It looks pretty sparse right now – lotsa blank space. I’ll get to the design eventually! I have a look in mind that will engage visitors.

*The negative connotations were inspired by a comment someone made of my jersey designs elsewhere on the interweb: “HOCKEY IS NOT GEEKY!” — challenge accepted.

    Hows it going Dave. First I love the concept and was bummed to find I missed out on getting a Lannister Jersey. I was actually wondering, do you have any intentions of offering them in larger sizes? Im quite a lot of geek. Something like 86.5 cm in the chest

    • I suggest you contact Rinkgear and see if they can accommodate you (info@rinkgear.com). If they cannot one option is to order the front crest by itself (which Rinkgear can do), and then slap it onto your own jersey that you’ve bought elsewhere (I suggest looking for Goalie jerseys, which have a larger cut). A pro shop could affix the crest as well as custom name and numbers. Obviously it would be more costly and lots of running around! Hopefully something can be arranged.
      Game of Thrones jerseys will be announced in the coming weeks. Thanks!

  2. Whoever said hockey isn’t geeky has not seen what the advanced statistics boys are doing with hockey stats.

    • Betcha their counterargument would be “That’s nerdy, not geeky, neener neener!” Such a fine line between the two classes with glasses.

      Speaking of which, a lot of people call my jerseys NERDY, and I am offended to no end. It’s driven me to drink.
