Young fan takes a Zamboni drive

MTL@TBL: Young Lightning fan helps clean the ice

A young Lightning fan goes for a ride on a fake Zamboni during the 1st intermission of Tampa Bay's game against the Canadiens

They don't just grow up too fast, they drive Zambonis WAY too fast.

A little tyke on a replica zamboni machine was spotted zooming around the ice between periods of the Tampa Bay Lightning's game Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens.

Clad in a black Lightning jersey, black helmet and seat belt much like a real Zamboni operator, the only added accessory for the little driver was a pacifier.

"Our Zamboni drivers, they just seem to be getting younger," broadcaster Paul Kennedy joked to analyst Dave Andreychuk during the scene.

In what could be considered a showoff move (look ma, no hands!), the toddler didn't even feel the need to pretend to steer. Good thing it'll be a while until that kid is on the road.
