Dec 20 2017, 2:27 am

Twenty years ago, if you wanted to get updates on last night’s game you had to ask your buddy Glen or – god forbid – look at the newspaper. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Now you’ve got the whole world of professional hockey right at your fingertips.

Here are a few of the best apps out there for all the tips, tricks, and highlights you can handle.

Budweiser Red Lights

Have you ever wanted your very own red light? With the Budweiser Red Lights app, you’ve get all of the explosive excitement right in your pocket. The app lets you sync up with your favourite team, and whenever they score a goal, your light goes off. It’s like having a red zone in your pants.


NHL GameCenter

With this free, official NHL app you can keep track of every game, every goal, and every fight, all in one place. You can customize alerts to let you know when your team is playing, get play-by-play info, a simulated view of the game, and even post-game highlights.

Hockey Emojis

A little whale or a jack-o-lantern just don’t cut it when you’re trying to wordlessly convey the emotions brought on during a third overtime. With Hockey Emojis by Budweiser, you’ll never have to settle for an airplane or a winking cartoon lady again.

Yahoo Fantasy Sports

The Yahoo Fantasy Sports app takes all the grunt work out of managing your fantasy teams. You can switch back and forth between different teams and different sports on the fly, check in on other managers in the message boards, and get your up-to-date information, game-by-game, and day-by-day. It’s the fantasy sports your always fantasized about.

Team Stream by Bleacher Street

This one is a fan favourite. With a simple, to-the-point design, and an easy-to-navigate interface, get all your gameday info in one place. News, clips, updates – it’s all there, and it’s right at your fingertips.


This app is one of the best out there. Get push notifications whenever your favourite player makes a scoring play or is in the headlines. Catch up on highlights, clips, and the best plays of the week. Find out when the next game is, and a real-time alert when it’s time to go. You can even get it on your Apple Watch, if you’re that kind of person. The future is here!

Budweiser BUD-e app

Connect right to your beer fridge. You heard that right: connect right to your fridge. The BUD-e app lets you interface with the Budweiser BUD-e fridge. Find out when the games starts, how many beers you have left, how cold they are, and where you can re-stock – all from your phone. Remember, the BUD-e app only works with the BUD-e smart beer fridge. There hasn’t been a beer-related technological innovation this amazing since the tall boy.
