Brett Howden, a.k.a. "Brett Howl-den"

Not much is known about Brett Howden, other than he's a forward for the Vegas Golden Knights. He's not a household name like Mark Stone or Jack Eichel, for he's a quieter hockey player stat-wise. However, there's a good reason why Howden should be represented in the Stanley Pup.

It all comes with the name, where "Brett Howl-den" fits like a collar on a dog. The nameplay itself is perfect, for it hits on a canine's basic actions. The Arizona Coyotes could've used a creative name like this before heading to Utah, for it would've been a home run.

Yes, Brett Howden isn't the most recognized Golden Knights player. That's what scoring eight goals and 11 assists in a season (72 games) does for a player. But the nameplay is perfect, with fans smiling at its sheer perfection. But what breed would "Howl-den" be?

Howden looks like he'd be a Golden Retriever if he were a dog. He looks like he has plenty of energy on the ice, bouncing around to make plays. Therefore, "Brett Howl-den" would be a Golden Retriever, seeking the puck wherever he goes. Plus, "Golden" Retriever and "Golden" Knights would be a great fit for the word relationship alone.
