Over the last two seasons, Brandon Bollig played in 52 total games for the Chicago Blackhawks (9, via the playoffs), scoring just one goal, while posting 120 penalty minutes.
The lone goal was during the 2011-12 playoffs.
Therefore, it’s a safe bet that Bollig’s role in Chicago is not fancy puck handling and lighting the lamp.
That’s why it’s amusing that a video landed recently, with Bollig attempting the same drills that Patrick Kane displayed in his very impressive stickhandling video.
As one would expect, Bollig has plenty of hockey skills, but he faltered quite a bit attempting to maneuver through the sea of pucks, eventually turning it into a string of outtakes – snow angels included.
But enough chatter, see the amusing display for yourself.
These are the kind of guys that you love to have playing on your team – the “work hard, play hard” types.
Oh, and ironically, Bollig scored a goal in the first game of the 2013-14 regular season.
Go figure, right?
