Create A Nickname For Jordan Leopold

The nicknames for Colorado Avalanche players are many and varied.  First, there are the simple ones: Bruno, Smytty, Boots, Lappy, Skratch.

Then, there are the cooler ones: Super Joe, Son Of Stastny, The Duke, Stylin' Liles, Domo Arigato Mr. Svatos.

Unfortunately left out of all of the nickname fun has been oft-injured but never-missed Avalanche defenseman Jordan Leopold.  After some prompting by MHH member Dario in the comments section of this post, I've decided it's time for us to create a nickname befitting such an important member of the Avalanche scratch list.

I'm not sure I have any really great suggestions, but what immediately comes to mind any time I read or write the name "Jordan Leopold" is the old Bugs Bunny episode "Long-Haired Hare," in which Bugs impersonates famous conductor Leopold Stokowski.

At the 4:50 mark, Bugs enters the orchestra pit at an opera and instantly the musicians whisper his "name" in awe and amazement: "Leopold.  Leopold.  Leopold!"

Though that doesn't exactly help with creating a nickname for Jordan Leopold, it's still fun to watch.  I digress.

So what do we know about Jordan Leopold?

  1. He's injured all the time.
  1. He's fair skinned.
  1. He wears number 44.
  1. He's not as sexy as John-Michael Liles (who is?)
  1. He's injured ALL THE TIME.

Hopefully that's enough to inspire some good ideas.  Please submit your brilliant nickname suggestions and after a couple of days I'll create a poll---we'll vote and determine the best one.  The rest of the season, I'll dutifully refer to Leopold by that nickname, and we'll see if it sticks.

Suggest some good ones, you clever geniuses.
