Everything is going great for the Dallas Stars this season: they lead the NHL in scoring and they find themselves at the top of the Western Conference standings.
A team that’s performing well deserves to have some fun at practice, and that’s exactly what the Stars did.
Goalie Kari Lehtonen wanted to get in on the scoring action, and since he doesn’t get the chance in a live game, he decided to switch spots with Tyler Seguin.
Using backup goalie Antti Niemi’s mask and gloves, Seguin planted himself in between the posts. Lehtonen went easy on Seguin, as he used a tennis ball instead of a puck, but his effort on the breakaway was nothing less than 100 percent.
Seguin looked the part, but he certainly is no goalie.
