Step right up and see if you can stop Johnny Boychuk, the amazing hockey puck whacker guy.
The New York Islanders defenseman channeled Shooter McGavin, the unforgettable antagonist from the classic comedy “Happy Gilmore” after a goal against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday.
Boychuk scored on a blistering slapshot in the second period then pulled his right hand out of his glove and did exactly what Christopher McDonald’s character, McGavin, does in the movies, mimicking a shot with his fingers.
Whether or not this is the start of a trend for Boychuk we will just have to wait and see.
Hopefully next time he pulls something from “Billy Madison.”
