Top Ten Hockey Players On Youtube.

Ok, this is for all the hockey players out there.  I don't care if you love roller hockey/inline hockey or ice.  It includes both types of players.  So here we go.  I'll start off with the number one and go down to number ten.  The top ten hockey players of youtube are:

1.) Rob Hisey - This guy has done a whole bunch of sick goals and started the whole "How to do the Michigan Hockey Goal" Tutorials craze.  He even has fans claiming he is one of the greatest players of all time, despite not being in the NHL.  His most famous goal is the lacross style shootout goal.

2.) Itan Chavira - Itan Chavira is an interesting case.  He's a roller hockey player.  A pro one and a very good one at that.  He is sponsored by Reebok hockey and I believe he plays overseas as well as in the United States.  He actually transitioned to ice hockey for a few years and made it into the ECHL.  He was eventually cut from the ECHL team.  His nickname is the Dangler and he has a ton of videos on youtube of him doing some sick roller hockey dangles.  Say what you will about inline hockey, but there is a whole lot of talent there.  He also has his own mass of followers online.  He should've probably tried to stick it out with the ECHL and develop more to make it even further in the sport of ice hockey.

3.) Mike Ribeiro - Ok, this guy is in the NHL.  So what?  He had a cool goal that everyone plays rock music over in their videos.  Yeah, sounds kind of lame, but the goal aint bad.

4.) Alexander Ovechkin - Ovie has some good goals, but his most famous one is the one that they made a whole damn feature for in a hockey videogame.  The one where he fell on the ice but still managed to get a shot off and score.  It was ridiculous that game developers touted this as a brand new feature in a hockey videogame and made such a big deal out of it.  Still, a good goal none the less.

5.) Sidney Crosby - Ah yes, the best player everyone loves to hate.  He's had similar goals to Alexander Ovechkin.  He's also had more.

6.) Chris Avery - Probably the very first fashion guru/hockey tough guy.  He had a rule invented after him.  The Avery Rule.  It basically stipulates that you can't waive your arms around in front of a goalie and act like an asshole.  He IS the most hated player in the NHL, voted by the players themselves! He is popular on youtube though.

7.) Gerald "Jerry" Osterkamp - Wow.  Another roller hockey player.  I told you this sport has talent.  Look for him on youtube and see what I am talking about.  He has a slick and smooth skating/stick handling style.  I also believe he is sponsored by Labeda Hockey Wheels.

8.) Brian Boucher - His best years may passed him, but there's no denying that his no helmet save in 2000 was one of the best ever.

9.) Ron Hextal - He held the record for most goals by a goalie.  Nuff said.

10.)Steve Levine - Awsome roller hockey goaltender.  Check him out.
