What is Puckdoku?

Puckdoku is an online game that tests fans not on what they know about NHL history, but on who they know. Puckdoku is this offseason's go-to timekiller for hockey lovers looking to fill out 3 by 3 grids of players. It's an entertaining trivia game based on hockey history.

Every day, game players are presented with a three-by-three grid in which they must identify players who have played for two different teams over their careers, players who have won a certain award while playing for a different team, and much more. Hockey players can only be used once in the grid, and game players only have nine guesses to complete the grid - a task that is easier said than done.


  1. Trivia-Based Gameplay: The game likely challenges players with hockey-related trivia questions, focusing on NHL history, players, teams, statistics, or memorable moments. Players may need to rely on their knowledge of hockey to answer the questions correctly.

  2. 3 by 3 Grids of Players: The game might present players with 3x3 grids, similar to Sudoku puzzles, but instead of numbers, the grids are filled with player names or other hockey-related terms. Players need to arrange the names correctly based on the trivia answers.

  3. Entertaining and Educational: "Puckdoku" aims to entertain hockey lovers while also providing an opportunity to learn more about the sport's history and key figures.

  4. Suitable for Offseason: Since the game is described as an offseason go-to timekiller, it's likely designed to engage fans during periods when there are no live games or when there's a lull in the hockey season.

  5. Online Platform: Being an online game, "Puckdoku" is likely accessible through web browsers or mobile apps, allowing players to participate from various devices.
