Two National Hockey League veterans showed off their fishing skills during some of their time off, and holy hell what a catch they came up with.

A series of pictures published online has revealed a giant looking sturgeon that was reportedly caught and released by Winnipeg Jets Dustin Byfuglien and Matt Hendricks.

While we admit we are no experts when it comes to fishing, this thing looks more like a dinosaur than a fish and considering just how big it is we're assuming it's a very old sturgeon indeed.

Here are the shots that were publish online.
