Apparently, there’s a reason (beyond the visual aid) that NHL players often use clear, hard plastic visors on their helmets. When they come together, they don’t interlock like two horned mammals fighting in the woods.
Unfortunately, that’s what happened to two players on Minnesota’s number one ranked hockey team after a goal celebration.
Just thirty seconds into the Gophers tilt against Boston College, Minnesota was able to take the lead thanks to a beautiful shot, a shot that the team decided to celebrate like they’ve done hundreds of times before.
But this time, two players who were jumping into each other became stuck together once their grilled masks interlocked, which, well, created quite the hilarious moment.
Hudson Fasching, who actually scored the goal couldn’t separate his mask from his teammate, so the two decided to skate over to their bench hoping the equipment manager could separate them before they were surgically bonded together for the rest of their life. Or until they took their helmets off, either or.
