The world of hockey has many interesting and odd facts. In this monthly series we hope to bring you some unusual and occasionally bizarre facts. We want to capture hockey at every level, definitely not just international, so if you know of any unusual or odd facts relating to our sport, please email it to us.

It is for the whole of the hockey world, so please give us your contributions wherever you are.
