It's a good thing the Vancouver Canucks aren't a soccer team, or they might end up playing barefoot.
Hang on, we can explain.
Henrik Sedin and Erik Gudbranson were playing a little pregame soccer in Dallas before playing the Stars Friday night. The ball got stuck up on a light fixture.
But the story, tweeted in its entirety by the Canucks Twitter account, is just starting.
Sedin successfully used his shoe to get the ball down (Who throws a shoe? Honestly!), but the shoe didn't come back.
Obviously not feeling discouraged by the result of his previous attempt, Sedin tried to retrieve the first shoe with his second shoe. You can imagine how that went.
With both of Sedin's shoes stuck up on the light fixture, it was now time to employ a hockey stick. That got one shoe down, but they are, of course, a pair.
It took Luca Sbisa putting Alexandre Burrows on his shoulders to get Sedin's second shoe.
The lesson here, kids? Watch where you play soccer.
