There's also Jughead's Hockey Song:

THE HOCKEY SONG (Smith, James, Good and Phillips) 1992

So there I was, over in Paris
Eating wine and drinking cheese
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Zoot Allure, mon Dieu, you are from Canada? Do you play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus
Well, I play Air hockey, Ball hockey, Barn Hockey, Bubble Hockey, Field hockey,
Floor hockey, Ice hockey, Kitchen hockey, Road hockey,Roller hockey, Table hockey, Twist hockey
And I play hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey,
hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey,hockey all the time!
Take shots!

So there I was way out in California
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from dude?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Wow! Where are you from dude?"
And I says "Look I'm from Canada"
And he says "Wow. If you're from Canada? Do you like, play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus

So there I was way down under in Australia
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Do right, honey child. If you're from Canada? Do you play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus

He shoots. He scores!

Hear the song in Quicktime

And apparently, they have Stompin' Tom's seal of approval:

But my favourite hockey song is the Grievous Angels' "Gordie and My Old Man", sung form the perspective of a woman whose boyfriend and dad like to watch the game and drink together:

"Gordie and my old man on a Saturday night, watching the Blackhawks and getting tight"
