Flamingo

Flamingo

A slang term used to describe a defensive player who lifts one of their legs, resembling the pose of a flamingo bird, in an attempt to block a shot. This maneuver is typically employed when a player is trying to protect themselves from getting hit by a hard slap shot or one-timer while sacrificing their body to block the shot. The term “flamingo” is a lighthearted way of describing the stance that players adopt when blocking shots. It reflects the dedication and commitment of hockey players to do whatever it takes to help their team defensively, even if it means taking a puck to the body.
