NHL rookie files trademark for 'Johnny Hockey' nickname

BY Jimmy Traina • January 14, 2015

Johnny Football has inspired Johnny Hockey.

Calgary Flames rookie Johnny Gaudreau has taken a page from Johnny Manziel's book and filed a trademark application for the term, "Johnny Hockey."

Gaudreau, who won the Hobey Baker award last season at Boston College, is trying to get the trademark in Canada and the United States.

In 42 games this season, Gaudrea has scored 13 goals and recorded 19 assists.

The 21-year-old winger has a long way to go to catch up to Manziel, though. The Browns quarterback has filed for 10 trademarks, including "Johnny Cleveland."
