Mad skills: Blues goalie takes a selfie while teammate scores goal
From Ellen’s record-breaking pic at last year’s Oscars to the holiday rise of the "selfie stick," it’s clear the self-taken photograph isn’t going away anytime soon.
The selfie again took centerstage during Saturday night’s NHL Skills Competition in Columbus thanks to St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott.
On his teammate Vladimir Tarasenko’s first attempt in the Breakaway Challenge, Elliott turned the situation on its head, ignoring Tarasenko’s shot and instead taking a selfie, which he then tweeted.

Despite Elliott’s best efforts, he couldn’t help Tarasenko win the competition, as Blue Jacket Ryan Johansen got the crowd pumped with a nod to the Ohio State Buckeyes and was crowned the Breakaway Challenge champ.
