Marc-Andre Fleury and Kris Letang sure know how to make an entrance.

The Vegas Golden Knights goalie and his former Pittsburgh Penguins teammate pulled up to SAP Center on scooters for the 2019 Honda NHL All-Star Game.

While other players rented cars, Fleury and Letang went in full tourist mode by taking scooters through San Jose. Clad in suits and fine footwear, they pulled up to the arena riding the hottest transportation method in Silicon Valley.

Letang, the Penguins defenseman making his fifth All-Star Game appearance, and Fleury, attending his fourth game and representing the Golden Knights for the second straight year, apparently downloaded an app that allows riders to rent the scooters on a per-ride basis. 

When riders are finished, they can just leave the scooter where it is for the next rider. But that wasn't exactly made clear to Fleury.

"I don't know if I can just leave [the scooter] here or take it [inside the arena]?" he asked Golden Knights staff in a video posted on Twitter.
