Puck Daddy's Create a Cheesy NHL Player Poster is our latest reader art contest, marrying your impressive Photoshop skills with your dark and twisted imaginations. So far, the results are impressive: The usual snarky takes on all things NHL, along with some honest-to-goodness attempts at creating legit 1990s-style posters for today's players:
That Jonathan Quick effort was the work of reader Kristopher Kern.
Once more, with feeling: This is a classic PD Photoshop contest, and we're looking for the most hilarious, creative and puckhead-smart posters; ones we'd proudly waste the Fun-Tack on to hang on our rec room.
We'll announce other door prizes in the next gallery, but remember: We're got a partnership with Heritage Hockey for this and other contests this year.
Heritage Hockey is home of Team Canada 1972 and your destination for hockey memorabilia. First Place prize for this contest: A Team Canada 1972 road jersey and a DVD copy of "'72 From Training Camp To Victory." We'll have additional NHL related prizes for the runners-up. Now head over to Facebook and "like" these guys for us.
Enter as often as you'd like (PG-13 Content Warning, as always). The deadline for submissions is Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. EST/3 p.m. PST. Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org, or hit us with any questions.
