College hockey chants and antics are the greatest. From experience, Yost Arena at UMich atmosphere is rowdy and hostile, with an appreciation to the game. I've heard similar stories from friends/co-workers who went to school in Boston. Yost Ice Arena is Michigan's hockey hot spot - USATODAY.com

Teddy Bear toss is fantastic. What a great tradition.

Ok, I added some other folks examples and a few new ones I came up with.

1-Paul Lorieau singing only the first 3 words of O Canada, and then letting the fans LOUDLY belt out the remainder of the entire song, INCLUDING Joey Moss singing his heart out (2006 Edmonton Oilers playoff run to the finals.)

2-Tossing plastic mice onto the ice EACH time they scored. (1996 Florida Panthers playoff run to the finals. The league banned it since.)

3-Tossing Octopus onto the ice (Detroit, forever)

4-The Terrible Towel/Towel Power. (1982 Roger Neilson, coach of Vancouver tired of the unfair calls against in the semi-final, against Chicago. He waved the trainers towel on a hockey stick, to symbolize waving the white flag. He was EJECTED from the game. At the next game, Canucks fans waved THOUSANDS of white towels. NOW a playoff tradition that continues to this day and that is widely copied by other hockey teams.)

5- Hat Toss for Hat Tricks (1950's)
Tossing hats onto the ice after a player scores the third goal of a hat trick.

6-Tossing Catfish onto the Ice. (2011 Nashville Predators)

7-Green Men (Vancouver 2011)

8-Teddy Bear Toss (annual, Calgary Hitmen, Portland Winter Hawks, Lethbridge Hurricanes)

9-Booing for Chris Pronger (every team in the league, every game)

10-The Playoff Beard (fans and players)

11-Home fans shouting the name of a home player whose name resembles a 'boo', when said player makes a spectacular play, (eg- "Luuuuuuuuuuuuke" Robataille in Los Angeles, and "Luuuuuuuuuuuuongo" in Vancouver)

12-Playing "Dont Stop Believing" and cutting off the sound for the crowd to sing "born and raised in south Detroit") (Detroit)

13-Booing for Gary Betttman (every team in the league, every time he dares to show his stupid pee-wee-herman look-a-like FACE)

Student sections at Minnesota high school hockey games can be quite creative. One that I liked was (I believe) first used by the Edina student section. When the players from the opposing team were being introduced, students would hold up and pretend to read newspapers as if the opponents were boring and unworthy of their attention.

Cakes were one of our main rivals. But it was a clever idea.

What do you think of Lightning fans gathering at the airport and making a human lightning bolt to send off the team?
