I've seen minor variations on some of these quotes, so I've gone with what I think are the most common versions.
'We take the shortest route to the puck and arrive in ill humor.'
'In a land so inescapably and inhospitably cold, hockey is the chance of life, and an affirmation that despite the deathly chill of winter we are alive.'

'I had the idea that I should beat up every player I tangled with, and nothing ever convinced me it wasn't a good idea.'
'How would you like a job where, every time you make a mistake, a big red light goes on and 18,000 people boo?'
'The three important elements of hockey are: forecheck, backcheck and paycheck.'
'Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept.'
'I can't really hear what Jeremy says, because I've got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.'
