Maybe we should reconsider if we actually want that as it seems Grabo forgot how to play the sport of hockey during the Ottawa Senators game.
In the game’s opening ten minutes, Grabovski was behind the Senators net. While camped out there, the Belarusian’s mind seems to start turning. He had a moment to do something fancy. Cue the trick shot!
As two Senators stared at him, Grabo tried to scoop up the puck as if he were playing lacrosse and score. Kind of like how Mikael Granlund did at the World Junior Championships a few years ago. Grabovski instead tossed it ineffectually at the back of the net.
In the second period, Grabovski went all extracurricular again.
After forcing Senators defenseman Marc Methot to turn the puck over, Grabovski’s stick flew out of his hands. Instead of giving up on the play, Grabovski skated alone towards the Senators net and tried to kick the puck soccer-style. He lost an edge and fell on his tushy.
It’s okay, Grabo, we still love you.
