We could have puppies on ice and whoopie cushion pads if some very cute hockey fans get their way.
Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon polled young players about how they'd make hockey more fun, then made some of those suggestions come to life in a new ad for Tim Hortons.
In the ad titled "Ask a Timbit," the Pittsburgh Penguins captain and Colorado Avalanche forward sat around soliciting ideas from some of the players for ways youth hockey could be less serious.
"If you score a goal, maybe you get a donut?" suggested one player.
"Puppies!" screamed another.
"Puppies on the ice!" added one more.
They took those suggestions and made them happen, with a donut-shaped piñata. Then came a slew of puppies wearing hockey jerseys, taking the ice before snuggling up to Crosby and MacKinnon.
Anything to keep the kids having fun on the ice.
