MONTREAL - Phillip Danault may have just come off a career-best 53-point season in which he won a team-leading 55.5% of his draws, but it turns out his skill set reaches far beyond the confines of an NHL ice surface.

The 26-year-old took to his personal Instagram story on Tuesday to show off his skills tickling the ivory - with a little help from his better half, Marie-Pierre.

The pair jammed out to a rendition of the jazz classic "Heart and Soul", while Phillip for his part threw down a piano duel challenge to teammate - and fellow musician - Matthew Peca.

Peca of course is no stranger to sheet music, having already serenaded Habs fans with a Christmas medley over the holidays.

He also wrapped up his interview with "Rogatien" with a little jingle, albeit on some unconventional equipment.

But ever the consummate team player, Peca suggested the pair collaborate instead.

Now all we want to know is when we can expect to see the two perform together on the Montreal Jazz Fest main stage...
