The San Jose Sharks turned to a 'Workaholic' for inspiration.

Blake Anderson, a comedian and actor from the San Francisco suburb of Concord, California, was the latest to let the Sharks onto the ice by opening the door before Game 6 of the Western Conference Second Round against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Anderson is best known for co-creating and starring as Blake on the Comedy Central show "Workaholics" that ran from 2011-17.

On the show, his character sought to do as little work as possible, but Anderson exerted significant energy Sunday by yelling, leaping and excitedly engaging with the Sharks as they walked past to the rink.

But Anderson's night wasn't done. He recorded a hype video then joined Sharks mascot SJ Sharkie to further pump up the fans at SAP Center.
