The HBO series Game of Thrones has become incredibly popular – not just with fans of the successful book series the TV show is based on, but with hockey fans as well. One of them – Capitals fan and Washington-based illustrator Rachel L. Cohen – decided to meld the NHL and Game of Thrones worlds by designing sigils (a.k.a. clan banners) for every NHL franchise.

Let’s hope no Game of Thrones fan starts marrying another element of the show – putting the decapitated heads of vanquished opponents on spikes – with teams and players eliminated from the NHL playoffs.
