J.J. Watt Also Can Play Hockey, As Blues Goalie Brian Elliot Found Out (Video)


Justin James Watt continues to impress.

The Houston Texans defensive end/tight end, better known as J.J., participated in a charity hockey event Friday at the University of Wisconsin, his alma mater. Watt, arguably the best all-around football player in the NFL, grew up playing hockey as well. Apparently, he still has quite the slapshot.

Watt was caught on camera in what appears to be a shootout with St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliot in net. After taking a few strides, Watt pulls up short, winds up and rips a slapper top shelf past Elliot, who probably intelligently dove out of the way of the shot from the 6-foot-5, 290-pound behemoth.

While it might not be the equivalent of Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara’s 108.8-mph record-breaking shot, that’s still a bullet we’d dodge, too.
