Dodgers show off their hockey skills

Kershaw among players trading bats and balls for sticks and pucks @NHL

The Los Angeles Dodgers showed they could be considered the home team if the NHL Stadium Series ever returns to Dodger Stadium.

At their spring training home in Glendale, Ariz., on Thursday, several members of the team took to Twitter to brag about their puck skills.

Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw, fellow starter Alex Wood and outfielder Joc Pederson were among the players to take shots during an impromptu gathering in the clubhouse.

Tweet from @Awood45: In case you were wondering how we get ready for the day! #ducksflytogether"In case you were wondering how we get ready for the day! #ducksflytogether" Wood wrote in his tweet.

Pederson's tweet, which showed him ready to snap off a shot at what appears to be relief pitcher Chris Hatcher playing goal in catcher's gear, was addressed to the Twitter handle for the Los Angeles Kings (@LAKings) and for Kings forward Tyler Toffoli (@tytoff16). Toffoli replied a few hours later, complimenting Pederson on his shooting form.

Tweet from @tytoff16: @yungjoc650 great form!!Dodger Stadium hosted a 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings. The Ducks won 3-0 on Jan. 25, 2014.

Tweet from @Boomskie: Yes, that's Kershaw taking a wrist shot in @Dodgers clubhouse this morning.
