As Forrest Gump would say: Hockey and Canada go together like peas & carrots.
And since our boy Lil Swaggy is getting his chance to lace up some ice skates, play some puck, and do his best Joshua Jackson in Mighty Ducks impression! (is that too old of a reference for him?)
Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Matt O’Dette offered the ‘Boyfriend’ singer a single year contract after seeing a video of him skate with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He has been offered a contract to play minor league ice hockey with the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL.
In a statement, O’Dette said, “Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness. We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario. I’ve scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us. Plus, he’s a right-handed shot which we’ve been looking to add.”
It could be that O’Dette is looking to get some press exposures for his team by associating it with The Biebs. The contract offer could be a publicity stunt. Or perhaps he genuinely would like The Biebs in uniform as a Condor.
I'm sure this has absolutely NOTHING to do with publicity/getting some fans in the seats, but who knew the Biebs was so multi-talented? I mean, he's only DONE EVERYTHING ALREADY. Why not play sports? [PopCrush]
