Honda NHL Commercial 2012 with Nicklas Lidstrom Detroit Red Wings Corey Perry Anaheim Ducks, and Passionate Fans Throwing Hats and an Octopus onto a Car Roof and Windscreen. This Ad has been the subject of comments from viewers intrigued by the throwing of hats and an octopus. The hat throwing celebrates a hat-trick in a sport where a player scores 3 goals in a game. The origin of the hat-trick goes back to English cricket in 1858 when HH Stephenson took three wickets in three balls and was presented with a hat for his achievement. The NHL started using the term hat-trick around the 1940s. The throwing of an Octopus by Red Wings fans started at the 1952 playoffs when Peter Cusimano, a local fish market proprietor, threw one onto the ice. The Octopus is significant as its 8 legs represented the 8 wins that were required to win the Stanley Cup at that time in history. The two NHL players in the Ad are Nicklas Lidstrom a retired Swedish ice hockey defence man and former captain of the Detroit Red Wings, and Corey Perry a Canadian ice hockey winger currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks.
