I was also going to suggest the garter. It will be a nice surprise for him when he goes to remove it. And, it won't take away from everything else.
how to include something special for fi (eg.hockey) ?

This is one thing I have been trying to incorporate!! FI is a HUGE Boston Bruins fan... We are not doing a garter or a flower toss at our wedding.. We wanted no dancing just an intimate dinner and a lounging area. Just good food with our loved ones!!! So I have been trying to figure out how to pull in those gosh darn bruins.. So I am very interested what everyone has to think about this topic!! Please keep these ideas coming!!

Are you doing and AHR? That's where I am incorporating the personalization... We are traveling with our families only, 18 total and our AHR will have over 100 of our friends and family. I left it up to him to pick what kind of dinner he wanted for the AHR, and since he is a seafood nut and charter captain on the weekends we are doing a traditional clambake on the water. I'm having a special cake made for him of his favorite fish, a bluefin tuna... Will add little things throughout the decor as well.

The garter is a perfect (subtle) way to incorporate a sports team. My fiance and I attended rival universities, so I found a garter site that would put the logos for both universities on the garter. I tried to keep it a secret from him, but I was just too proud of myself and ended up showing him when they arrived in the mail - doh!
If you are not doing a garter, then the cake topper is a great way to go. I had a personalized cake topper made with my fiance and I in our wedding attire. But there is no reason you couldn't switch out your fiance's shirt/jacket for a Bruins sweater! I had mine made as a surprise, and I think surprising your then husband at the reception/dinner with his team would make you the best new wife in the world.
