Rob Gronkowski practices as NHL goalie!

From football to hockey!


The NFL season might be over, but tight end Rob Gronkowski refuses to stop. 

On Tuesday, he got dressed as the goalie for the Tampa Bay Lightning and practiced with the team, taking shots from none other than captain Steven Stamkos on the ice. 

Forward Pat Maroon filmed the action and posted it on social media, which has gone viral. 

This is the first time Stamkos has skated with his teammates since sustaining a lower-body injury in early April. Stamkos has 17 goals and 17 assists in 38 games for the Lightning this season.

He is likely to return for the postseason, in which the Bolts are expected to be quite a threat with Nikita Kucherov also returning. 

The Russian sniper was also on the ice he who has missed the entire regular season after undergoing off-season hip surgery. The team knew he would miss the regular season and hoped he would be back for the post-season.

And boy do they look ever ready. 

Gronk, on the other hand, has some skills in between the pipes, but we bet he is nowhere ready to replace Andrei Vasilevskiy!
