PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — On Saturday night, the NHL’s brightest stars took part in several skills competitions ahead of Sunday’s All-Star Game. The Flyers were represented by their two all-stars, Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux.
Both took part in the NHL Breakaway Challenge which pits some of the league’s best scorers against goalies in a one-on-one showdown.READ MORE: 6 Dead, 30 Wounded In Shooting At Chicago-Area July 4 Parade; Person Of Interest In Custody: Police
Well, sometimes it’s two-on-one.
Blue Jackets center Ryan Johanson put on a show for the hometown crowd on Saturday night during the Breakaway Challenge. One of his attempts featured the center removing his Blue Jackets jersey to reveal a #5 Ohio State football jersey underneath which played very well to the crowd.
Later in the event, he acquired the help of the 7-year old son of Blue Jackets trainer Mike Vogt to come out on the ice and score the goal for him.READ MORE: Fourth Of July Parade, Concert, And Fireworks Take Over Philadelphia
Voracek took notice and decided to use the heartwarming moment for inspiration.
When it was Voacek’s turn, he enlisted the help of the Calgary Flames’ Johnny Gaudreau.
Gaudreau is only 5’9″, 150 pounds and the laughs were quite audible as Voracek pretended to ‘assist’ him down the ice for the score.
Johansen eventually went on to win the Breakaway Challenge, but Voracek definitely let his presence be known for the funniest moment of the night.MORE NEWS: For Some, Fourth Of July Traditions Down Jersey Shore Date Back To 1960's
