#TBT: Ryan Getzlaf rubs Bobby Ryan's nose in gold medal at NHL Awards

Ducks forward had fun at teammate's expense during 2010 ceremony

Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan were at each other's throats as members of the Anaheim Ducks, or so a sketch at the 2010 NHL Awards would have had you believe.

In the amusing comedy bit, Getzlaf mercilessly teases his then-teammate Ryan [who is now with the Ottawa Senators] by calling him "Silver." Getzlaf was on Team Canada, which won the gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, beating Ryan and Team USA.

The bit is filled with good gags, including Ryan using Getzlaf's tailor, on the one condition that he "stood on a lower podium."

The two players agreed to decide things with a decathlon, which also produced some funny results and a cameo from former Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer, also a member of Team Canada in 2010.

The results for Ryan were not great, but he took it like a good second-place sport.
