Ryan O'Reilly introduced Lazlo Holmes to fake teeth.

The St. Louis Blues center took out his chompers, much to Holmes' dismay, during their interview before St. Louis' game against the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday.

O'Reilly became the latest NHL player to join Holmes for an interview, and the reporter commended his height and beard and for being "the most hockey player I've seen so far." Then he asked what "the most hockey thing" about him is.

"My teeth are kind of fake," O'Reilly said while moving his chiclets into an unnatural position.

"That is definitely hockey," Holmes responded, "and I'm terrified."

Holmes and O'Reilly also discussed his career season in 2018-19, playing in St. Louis and his day with the Cup.
