What is a hockey bubble? What is the NHL bubble & hub cities? The NHL “bubble” consists of limited areas in two hub cities — Edmonton and Toronto — where team personnel will be required to remain as the league tries to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Each club is taking up one floor in a designated hotel.
Who invented bubble hockey? Modern bubble hockey was first developed in the late 1970s by inventor David M. Barcelou.
How does a bubble hockey table work? Unlike foosball, air hockey, and other game tables, bubble hockey tables have a clear dome over the top of the table. The dome, often called bubble, is hard and virtually indestructible, which is great for when players launch the puck into the air, as it can hit the dome and fall back down onto the table.
What is arcade hockey called? The arcade version is called ‘dome hockey’ or ‘bubble hockey’, because of the large plastic dome that covers the playing surface in order to prevent the puck either becoming lost or stolen. The most popular of these ‘bubble hockey’ tables is Chexx (USA vs. Soviet Union) and its successor, Super Chexx (Canada vs. USA).
