It's fall in New York, so perhaps Lias Andersson just wanted to fit in.
The New York Rangers forward had an unfortunate spill on the ice during pregame introductions, when his skate got caught in a cable connected to a TV camera.
Andersson bounced up like a champ and even took to Twitter afterward to have a chuckle at the odd moment.
After the mishap, the EA Sports NHL '20 account tweeted a joke at Andersson, saying his balance rating number was about to decrease.
Andersson, for his part, kept his focus on what really mattered, the Rangers' 6-4 season-opening victory against the Winnipeg Jets.
