Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby received an eyeful of goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury during a recent off-ice workout session.
While doing his leg exercises, Crosby looked toward the other end of the room to see Fleury aggressively going through the paces with a hula hoop. The two-time Hart Trophy winner struggled to keep a straight face nearly 50 seconds into the video before asking the 31-year-old Fleury how many rotations he was able to get.
To his credit, Fleury did his best to play along. Via Pittsburgh Penguins’ official Twitter account:
“I don’t know if I broke a record.”
His hilarious hula-hooping skills notwithstanding, Fleury’s solid goaltending has enabled low-scoring Pittsburgh (21-17-7) to remain competitive this season. The top overall pick of the 2003 draft has posted a 16-11-5 mark with three shutouts and a 2.28 goals-against average.
The Penguins have dropped five of their last seven heading into Thursday’s home game against the Keystone State-rival Philadelphia Flyers (20-15-8).
