You wouldn’t think that Phineas and Ferb and the NHL have much of a history together, but back in Oct. 2011, the league started a partnership with the show.

The NHL sold merchandise that featured the show’s characters and played clips during games.

“The Phineas and Ferb brand evokes creativity, youthfulness and high energy, not unlike the NHL brand,” said the NHL’s vice president of consumer products Jim Haskins at the time in an NESN report.

Recently the show took another dip into the hockey world when they invited Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille to guest star in the season premiere For Your Ice Only.

“It was a blast working with Luc. He’s a genuinely great guy and very patient with the whole process,” said co-creator and executive producer Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, according to Fox Sports West. “We had more than a few laughs at the sessions, and I’d be happy to have him back one day. Personally, it was a real honor to have worked with him.”

Robitaille is one of just 18 members of the 600-goal club, the reigning Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings’ president of business operations and, most importantly, had a cameo in D2: The Mighty Ducks.

    Not to mention the fact that …

    the LA Kings have by far the “coolest”, “funniest” and most “cutting edge” social media department in the entire league ! Like most everyone else, I too am deeply disappointed with Bettman and his lockout “charade” here. Yet in being somewhat selfish and playing the Devil’s Advocate, I can truly say that we King’s fans are able to view this delay as an absolute Godsend ! Among other things, it’s given our team not only “time” to rest and heal (comrades Quick and Martinez), but more importantly “time” to recover from the emotional blahs which “always” inevitably follow in the wake of glorious emotional highs, such as those which we experienced this past spring. The bottom line friends is that with “anything” in life, there is always a silver & black lining … you just have to look for it ! :)
