The NHL's answer to Chewbacca met the genuine article.

San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, known for his wookie-length beard and hair, tweeted a photo from a family vacation to Disney World.

Burns, who famously donned a Chewbacca mask during the Breakaway challenge at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game, is wearing Yoda ears this time around and a T-shirt with Storm Troopers on it and looking very much at home.
