Joel Kiviranta’s helmet made the Stars players and coaches laugh.
Dallas Stars NHL forward Joel Kivirantaa got kicked out at the team’s morning ice on Friday.
A white plastic mug had been attached to Kiviranta’s helmet, and the man was frolicking on the ice blissfully unaware of the matter.
Stars published a video of the morning training, in which the Finnish player got to play the main role.
– There was quite a lot of laughing in training today, the club wrote on Twitter.
The video shows how, for example Esa Lindell and Jani Hakanpää laughing at Kiviranta behind his back.
The team’s coaches are also scrambling to break up. Star striker Jason Robertson on the other hand, blinks at the camera a little confused.
Kiviranta himself took the case with humor.
– I didn’t realize anything until (coach) Pete DeBoer told me to look in the mirror. Then I understood why everyone was laughing at me, Kiviranta said according to Stars.
