[UPDATE:] Apparently this is from the Skills Competition, not the game and it wasn’t a jersey. There was a one-on-one shootout event, and after getting scored on, Russian goalie Konstantin Barulin took of his jersey to reveal the muscle suit underneath. He then got scored on again, but it doesn’t look like he was trying particularly hard.

And he wasn’t the only one to do something weird:

*************

I admittedly don’t know anything about the KHL All Star game, but I saw this photo on Twitter and found it interesting. The goalie appears to be wearing a padded jersey that is made to look like a shirtless muscle bound guy. Kind of like those padded muscle bound super hero costumes.

It certainly is odd and unusual. Why is it always hockey teams that do the really odd jerseys?
