Lego Hockey - Lego is a popular line of construction toys manufactured by The Lego Group, a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. The company's flagship product, Lego, consists of colourful interlocking plastic bricks and an accompanying array of gears, minifigures and various other parts.
Lego bricks can be assembled and connected in many ways, to construct such objects as vehicles, buildings, Hockey Rinks and even working robots. Anything constructed can then be taken apart again, and the pieces used to make other objects.
Lego began manufacturing interlocking toy bricks in 1949. Since then a global Lego subculture has developed, supporting movies, games, films, competitions and LEGO HOCKEY

List of Lego Hockey Players and Games :
- Lego Puck Passer (3540) - 44 pieces
The "Puck Passer" is one of the individual figures in the Hockey series. Done up in red and gray, it has a black expression on its face but it is still able to move and pass the puck around. Comes with modified hockey stick and pucks featuring the Lego logo on one and the NHL crest on the other.
- Lego Slap Shot (3541) - 45 pieces
Orange and white are the team colors for this hockey drone. Made up mostly of LegoTechnic elements, this figure is easy to assemble and like the others in this series it comes with a modified hockey stick and pucks. Features NHL crest on faux jersey and number 8 on the helmet.
- Lego Flip Shot (3542) - 46 pieces
Number 3 is another addition to the figure mini series of the Lego Hockey theme. Blue, gray and white are the predominate colors and like the others it comes with a modified stick and two pucks that have the Lego logo and NHL crest. It is easy to assemble and doesn't fall apart when played with or used to slam the pucks around.
- Lego Slammer Goalie (3543)
Made up of black and gray elements, this rather fierce looking goalie is ready to defend the net. Number 6 on the helmet, two pucks.
- Lego Game Set (3544) - 146 pieces
A great mid sized set that comes with two of the Slammer styled figures, four hockey pucks, two modified hockey sticks and two individual hockey nets. This makes for a great addition to any of the Lego Hockey themed sets or to add to an arena setting for practice time. Figures are orange / black and black / green.
- Lego Puck Feeder (3545) - 151 pieces
At first glance this set looks almost identical to the "Game Set" but it isn't it is made up of one Slammer styled figure, one Technic designed puck feeder and a goal. This set comes with give pucks, a feeder that you load the pucks into and one figure that can use the modified hockey stick to shoot the puck into the net for practice.
- Blue Player and Goal (3557) 34 pieces
- Red Player and Goal (3558) 34 pieces
- Red and Blue Player (3559) 41 pieces
These three sets were the smallest in the series and served as a teaser to get kids hooked on the Lego NHL line. They were priced at $3.99 when they were first released and were extremely popular as it was an easy way to get figures if you wanted to modify them or change the team colors. A lot of people bought them and morphed them into their favorite NHL team.
- NHL Championship Challenge (3578) - 374 pieces
The "Championship Challenge" comes with eight unique figures, an arena set up and poles to move the players. It is easy to build and fun to play with but there are some design flaws with the players and the poles that are used to move them around. Consider this the Lego NHL version of FooseBall.
- NHL Street Hockey (3579) - 114 pieces
Instead of the Slammer styled figures that appear in other sets in this series, you get actual Lego mini figures to play with. It is a nice addition to the Lego NHL partnership but because most of the other sets have the Technic styled figures, this one loses a little bit of replay value.
The last two regular (non-promotional) sets were both released in 2003 as 'special' additions to the Lego NHL series. They include the "NHL Action Set" (10127) and the "Slammer Stadium" (65182). There were numerous promotional sets given away at select hockey and Lego events to promote the series.
All of the sets in the Lego Hockey series are fun to build and play with especially if you get one of the arena or stadium sets. They make for great gifts for any NHL or hockey fan and with a little bit of effort you can easily modify them to look like your favorite team or player. The sets contain small parts and pieces and are suggested for those ages six and older.
Hockey was the subtheme of sports introduced into the Lego family in 2003. With exceptions, no actual Minifigures were used, instead, Hockey players are built out of TECHNIC pieces. The sets were mainly based upon different unique players, with the exceptions of the Minifigures-included sets.
In 2003 Lego also introduced new skin tones for mini-figures based on actual people.
Some 2004 sets were McDonalds promotions.
Some Hockey sets are very collectable.
Custom Lego Art has been produced since the 1950s
