And they've only ever played against Lebanon and Morocco.

It would be awesome if their goalie had a mask that looked similar to the headpiece. Although it would probably break the rules in some way.

*"Good evening, Canada, and hockey fans in the United States and......Egypt?"*

I'm an Egyptian and honestly I didn't know this existed.

Finally, the secrets of the pyramids revealed! They were hiding giant ice hockey rinks inside all of that stone insulation!

/r/hockey would like this.

I expected it to be from the description, but when I looked at the pic it kinda looked like a cartoon sphinx that was trying not to spit out food..

I'd buy that shirt.

This is they first time I've ever said "that's pretty fuckin' dope!" about something, but I stand by it!

That's actually the real Egyptian mask.

Should have taken the ears off.

As a Canadian and a fan of ancient Egypt...words cannot describe how giddy this makes me feel.

Quite a few of them belong to the same hockey club, Anubis, which has a [pretty cool emblem itself](https://i.imgur.com/epycKhP.jpg). Given Egypt's history, as far as club names and logos go, their work is cut out for them.

Ice...Egypt....does not compute.

That's fucking metal.

My dad worshipped hockey. My mom didn't. That's why she moved to Egypt, where there's not a hockey rink within 1500 miles.

Nice repost.
13 Oct 2017 21:11 - +1
And majority of the roster is part club Anubis

I guess Happy Gilmore's mom couldn't get away from hockey after all.

They play the Pyramid formation.

Being Egyptian-Canadian, I’m both super happy this is a thing, and little embarrassed that I had no idea this is a thing.
13 Oct 2017 21:28 - +1
They have a club called Anubis. Fucking awesome.

King Puck

has potential but needs a lot of cleaning up
13 Oct 2017 21:31 - +1
Does this mean Happy Gilmore's mom had to move again?
13 Oct 2017 21:38 - +1
I hear Jamaica has a bobsled team too
13 Oct 2017 21:29 - +1
Does this mean Happy Gilmore’s Mom is coming home?
13 Oct 2017 21:39 - +1
But the coolest *name* ever for a hockey team is a minor league team from Georgia, the Macon Whoopies.

I thought Happy Gilmore' s mother went to Egypt because there isn't a hockey rink for 1500 miles. Maybe this is the one 1500 miles away.

I prefer the Milwaukee Admirals old logo. https://www.google.com/search?q=milwaukee+admirals&client=safari&hl=en-us&tbm=isch&prmd=nimv&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwif9eH_3O3WAhVn8IMKHXu-BT4Q_AUIEygC&biw=375&bih=553&dpr=2#imgdii=EQ8He_jMJgnJsM:&imgrc=MjzPFjoZk9JV4M:

Do you ever see something and wonder if they worked it backwards? Like they made a cool emblem, but realized it wouldn't have any worth of it weren't implemented.
13 Oct 2017 21:26 - +1
Haha I'm sorry man but that looks awful
13 Oct 2017 21:09 - +1
Hoping they've got some merch

That’s cultural appropriation. They should die.
