Player Nicknames

We use a bunch of nicknames on this site from the team's nicknames for each other so I thought it would be interesting to compile them all and the background to them:




Sidney Crosby - Sid the Kid, probably until he's in his 60's from his youthful attitude. Sid is probably more proper.

Evgeni Malkin - Geno (short for Eugene)

James Neal - Real Deal

Chris Kunitz - ??? can't think of one, might have heard Kuny?

Jordan Staal - Staalzy I think is the player's nickname for him

Matt Cooke - Cookie (sometimes expanded to Cookie Monster)

Tyler Kennedy - TK

Marc-Andre Fleury - Flower (Fleur in french)

Sullivan - Sully ?

Mark Letestu - Testtube

Pascal Dupois - Duper

Paul Martin - Paul Bearer

Michalek - Big Z

Brooks Orpik - Free Candy, from a player interview in playoffs. Great videos on youtube if you search.

Kris Letang - Tanger

Eric Tangradi - was tanger2, lately its been E-train

Please feel free to fill in the blanks and players I'm missing.
