The hockey community was buzzing last week thanks to a promotion by the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.
The top minor league affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes is allowing players to choose their own goal song for when they score at home.
“I think it’s unreal,” Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves said. “I’ve made that suggestion many times.”
It’s not the first time players cheap nhl jerseys have doubled as DJs. The Vancouver Canucks also had a similar policy as recently as last season.
The musical possibilities are endless, from Top 40 club beats to cheesy love songs to German industrial metal.
Anything but Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part 2,” right?
So, what would the Knights’ players pick for their song?
Here is what a few of them had to say:
Reaves: “Oh, man. Off the top of my head, it would probably be a J. Cole song. Like, ‘Can’t Get Enough.’ It was either my favorite artist or something just ridiculous. “Mambo No. 5” or something.”
Nate Schmidt: “I did ‘Sweet Emotion’ when I was in high school baseball, and that was super cool. It was sweet. You walked up, you felt a little juice going, a little flow. I think it’s great. Maybe something like a Buster Poindexter “Hot Hot Hot.” I love that song. I’m feeling hot, hot, hot.”
