Finally, the Stanley Cup Finals have arrived. The one time a year when Canadians and Americans alike come together to bond over sports. This year, it is the Washington Capitals and the Vegas Golden Knights. Washington fans now have something to really be proud about in a town not known for much good going on.
The Stanley Cup is a 126-year-old hockey tradition. For me, it’s easily one of the best events in the sport. The Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins have been dominant over the past several years, but fans of every team should enjoy this historic event. It’s like the Super Bowl stretched out over four to seven games. So it is like the Super Bowl without all the sometimes interesting commercials.
So, as hockey fans everywhere celebrate the sport and the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals, here are a few things you can grab to help remember this year’s series, and maybe even start a collection for future years.
Stanley Cup Jerseys and Apparel
Jerseys can be expensive, however, so you can also look into Stanley Cup hats, shirts, and jackets. It gets pretty cold up in Pennsylvania, so why not throw on a Stanley Cup Finals Capitals jacket to show off your favorite team and stay warm at the same time?
Stanley Cup Shot Glasses
The best part is, they’re cheap, and this is the great start of a collection you can check out here. You can find shot glasses everywhere for just about anything, and never much more than $10 or so. Grab yourself one to remember this year’s Stanley Cup and then grab a few more for your favorite teams, players, and hockey events.
Commemorative Hockey Puck
Get one to commemorate the Capitals, the Knights, or just the game in general. They can come ready in display cases and still cost less than $20. And hey, even if you hated this year’s championship, you can grab yourself a puck for your favorite team or player. You can never have enough of your favorite sport’s ball-equivalent. Heck, even a Marc-Andre Fleury Vegas Golden Knights deluxe tall hockey puck case (certified authentic) would make a hardcore NHL fan more than excited.
Pucks are easy to display, easy to carry around if you’re trying to collect signatures, and a cheap way to start a great collection of fun hockey collectibles that’s easy to grow every year.
Stanley Cup Finals Patch
These patches are also perfect for big hockey fans in general. There have been quite a few Stanley Cups, and you can still find patches for many of them right here.
Start a collection of Stanley Cup patches. Get a big frame for them all, or just lay them out under some glass. Then you can easily add to them each season to update your collection.

Again, even if you aren’t a big fan of the Capitals or Knights, you can find bobbleheads for your favorite players. So, whether you’re a Montreal Canadiens fan, cheering for the New York Rangers, or can’t get enough of the Boston Bruins, there’s a bobblehead with your name on it.
