So everyone’s favorite pop star Justin Bieber attempted to play hockey today…
But it wasn’t just him! Yesterday, 37 players took to the ice for the 2017 NHL All Star Shootout, a roster that included a mix of celebrities and 21 of the greatest NHL players of all time playing for coaches Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky. Among the list were Patrick Kane, Teemu Selanne, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Jerry Bruckheimer.
The star on Team Gretzky that caused the most stir however was good ol’ #6 himself, Justin Bieber, who tweeted out to his 91.5 million followers on Saturday morning that he would be included in the lineup, which makes me think this has to be the most teenage girls to ever tune in to a hockey game!
To give credit to the Biebs, he didn’t play as bad as you may have secretly been hoping, and he even scored an empty netter at the end of the game.
But even Justin Bieber isn’t immune to the aggressive defense work of the NHL great Chris Pronger, who gifted the internet with a shot of Bieber pinned up against the glass with a giant grin on Pronger’s face.
Now, as a rock fan, I don’t think I’ve ever even heard an entire Justin Bieber song, so I don’t really have a strong opinion about him either way. But I know how a lot of people feel about the Biebs, so you may find some joy in watching the video below…
