Take a look inside some of hockey’s finest fan caves

In our Fan Issue, we asked you to submit pictures of your fan cave. The submissions are in and now you can take a look into some of the finest hockey fan heavens across the world.

Hockey fans are a special breed. So special, in fact, we dedicated an entire issue, appropriately
dubbed the Fan Issue, entirely to the hockey fan. Be it cheering (or jeering) habits, your fantastic fan stories, or a little bit about the players you love the most, we wanted to give you the issue you’ve always wanted. In return, we asked for one small thing: pictures of your fan cave – the place you go, decked out with all your favorite gear, to watch your team 82 times during the regular season as they work towards chasing hockey’s ultimate prize. We received a number of submissions, but below you can find our favorites:

This Rangers fan heaven, complete with what looks like custom Rangers carpeting, comes in courtesy of ASW:

Jordy Wurfel For Liam Scanlan, the glory days came back in 1989 when the Flames won their first and only Stanley Cup. His love for Theo Fleury and Trevor Kidd runs deep:

Paul Baker Nate Morton seems like he would have been sad to see the North Stars leave, but one can imagine he’s pretty happy with this season’s Minnesota Wild:
Nate Morton While Nate enjoys the start to this season, Greg Chassman certainly takes time to reminisce about the way last season ended:
