Mika Zibanejad showed off one more skill for his ever-evolving resume.

The New York Rangers forward displayed a competent kicking leg, nailing a long field goal in a post he shared on Instagram on Super Bowl Sunday.

Zibanejad's post was in honor of the Super Bowl with the caption "Anyone need a kicker?" He may have learned a thing or two from watching Manchester United since he's a huge fan of The Red Devils.

Aside from being the Rangers leader in points, and apparently a budding football kicker, Zibanejad also is an accomplished musician who was the DJ at Henrik Lundqvist's Unmasked event in 2016.
