Hockey Rec Room Design

Hockey Rec Room Design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas

This is an old design that I’m bringing over from my hockey blog. It is the hockey pad of my dreams! The centerpiece of the design is a floating entertainment unit that is mounted onto a wall (adorned with a crowd mural) that looks like an NHL scoreboard, this is where the TV sits.

Bubble Hockey Snow Globe

Now that the NHL has a few outdoor games every season, this trinket makes sense. The stand even makes it easier to shake! Sadly you can’t play with it.

Reminds me of that Pocket Rod Hockey toy that came out a few decades ago, which is playable. Not sure how good a game can be between two people, but I want one.

Hidden Hockey Rink Stadium

I’m a fan of the NHL’s outdoor games, but I feel that the viewing experience for fans in lower seats must be somewhat poor, despite being closest to the rink. If only the rink was sunken into the ground! Well now that there are football stadiums with grass fields that slide outside, that is a possibility.

Karate Kid NHL Playoff Bracket

Here is a design that can translate to any sport with playoffs: the bracket from the background of the All Valley Tournament, seen in the original The Karate Kid. The above depicts the upcoming 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Go Flames Go.

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Custom NHL Furniture by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team.

How Do These NHL Socks Not Exist?

NHL Tube Socks Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas.com

You can buy NHL-branded socks that feature the team colors, logo, and nickname. But what about socks that look just like the ones the players are wearing? No such thing exists!

What is even more baffling, is that you don’t need an NHL license to produce these. That is because these designs are simply an arrangement of colors and stripes – no team nicknames or logos. You’d think some company would capitalize on this.

I personally would love to throw on some red Calgary Flames socks on game day. Being socks they don’t have much visibility, so I can safely wear these when I am out and about here in Vancouver*.

This could also be done with NFL, MLB, NBA and FIFA too. Well, the teams that wear colorful striped socks. Appears to be an endangered species in the NFL, and seldom seen in the NBA or FIFA.

Note: This was going to be a part of the Geeky Fashion series, but this is not quite geeky.

*When I wear my Flames jersey in Vancouver, I usually end up reminding Canucks fans how many Stanley Cups my team has won (just the one – 1989) with a count of fingers. I don’t use my index finger. Ha.
