Matt Martin is spending his time during the paused NHL season teaching his dog some new tricks.
The New York Islanders forward was filmed playing some football in his yard with his pooch, Jax.
Matin's video starts with a genuine greeting and well wishes for fans during the coronavirus pandemic. Then he shares how he has been spending his time.
As the camera pulls away, it is revealed that Martin is wearing a Cincinnati Bengals No. 7 jersey. Martin's father-in-law is former Bengals quarterback and 1988 NFL MVP Boomer Esiason, now an analyst for the NFL on CBS, a morning host on WFAN radio and also a very big New York Rangers fan.
Martin says the trick he is teaching Jax is called "rushing the quarterback." He pulls on a Bengals helmet to complete the look, gets a football tossed to him and takes off.
Martin scrambles around like Lamar Jackson for a few seconds, but doesn't take long for Jax to tackle him and get the ball.
