Are there a lot of hockey rinks that are covered in advertisements?

Yeah that seems to be a thing in Europe.

But I do admit  that I like the pure white vs off-white thing they did in the circles, that looks good.

In Europe, the jerseys are also plastered with sponsors or ads, which makes for great sales. Every year a top-level soccer team will have a different jersey, either with a new sponsor or a new colour or a slight variation from the previous season's kit. Sports owners in North america still haven't figured this out yet.

Came here to ask why they are playing hockey on a NASCAR racecar.

I think they figured out that I'm even less likely to buy a shiatty hockey sweater because they added a Walmart logo to it.

I keep thinking the name of the team is The Emirates.

Minor league teams in baseball and hockey do this all the time.

One year the CHL hockey team I had tickets to had 3 normal jerseys and 10-12 other special event jerseys.

Yeah, chalk up another to the 'couldn't even enjoy the goal with all the crappy ads everywhere.'

The Washington Generals play hockey now?
Cuz that goalie sure looked like one.

That was one of the few legal spin shootout goals I've seen.  Usually the puke stops or goes back up ice.  They never disqualify the illegal goals though because getting on sports center is more important than adhering to the rules.

It's also because no one wants a hypertechnical reading of the rules like that.  If you want to be that ticky tacky, a guy pulling the puck back to win up a wrist shot would require the whistle to be blown.  Thankfully, refs get the point of the rule.

Don't eat the yellow ice.

If it reduced the price of authentic jerseys then maybe I'd get one... but I'm sure as hell not going to spend $300 to be a walking billboard for anything besides my team and I still won't do that.

Not eligible for best shoot out goal:

Rule 432-C: Wearing of long sleeves soccer jerseys disqualifies the goal immediately.

Rule 539-A(2): If goal is scored in a 3rd world shiathole against a goalie who couldn't ride the pine in the AHL, the quality of said goal is irrelevant.

I wouldn't call a country that has put men into space, and has nuclear weapons "3rd world" - but whatever.

Tripping in the yellow zone = a major penalty

The reason hockey teams are plastered with logos on the ice and uniforms is a bit of trade-off with the sponsors.

In Europe, they dont take "TV Timeouts" three times a period like they do in North America. Since they are passing up on the commercials, they do the in-play ads instead.

It makes for a better hockey watching experience.
