Ron Swanson may want all of the bacon and eggs, but on Sunday he got a biscuit.

Comic actor Nick Offerman, who is best known for playing Swanson, the ultra-manly character from the show "Parks & Recreation" stepped up to play "Shoot the Puck" at the United Center during a game against the Calgary Flames.

Offerman, a native of Minooka, Illinois, took center ice wearing a customized alternate Blackhawks jersey and put the biscuit in the basket. After his goal, he dropped his stick and walked away, as one should.

Tweet from @NHLBlackhawks: What he said was, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have," and we understood.#Hawkspotting pic.twitter.com/K7AgpqrHHD

In addition to his showbiz talents, Offerman is also an expert woodworker and he proved he knows how to use the lumber out on the ice.

Ron Swanson would be proud, if he were capable of emotion.
