NHL gives GIFs, Gritty steals spotlight
The NHL just keeps giving.
First, Seattle gets a hockey team. Now the league is providing a little holiday cheer via GIFs with the 2018 NHL GIF Exchange.
So many GIFs it's basically GIFmas.
On Twitter, the NHL started a thread where each team could share their favorite GIF of the year. Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty, although an adversary of Pittsburgh Penguins fans, has received a lot of love in GIF form.
And really, a GIF is about the amount of exposure to that monster that would be recommended by a doctor. Probably.
Be warned: once you start GIFing, it's hard to stop.

The Penguins hadn't submitted their GIF choice as of Tuesday afternoon, but Pens fans jumped in with some top notch work.
