A Canadian/American term that was originated in Canada, meaning a game of hockey played on a backyard rink or a flooded, frozen pond. The game is played with only sticks, skates and sometimes gloves. Shinny is the best part of winter. And let's be honest, which hockey player doesn't love a text from a mate saying "wanna play some shinny?"
