A Look Back at NHL Muppet Pins

My two favorite things in life are Muppets and the NHL. Combine the two and it’s like mixing chocolate and peanut butter. I recently learned that years ago, a series of Muppet pins were released for NHL teams and given away to fans who showed up early for games.

The pins featured Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal in adaptations of the team’s logo. Thankfully, there is no Pepe the King Prawn, and if there were we’d slap him on the Columbus Blue Jackets or Minnesota Wild pin. Too bad they didn’t use the Swedish Chef and Beaker.

These pins are sometimes available on eBay, but also check out River City Sports website.
