Grabo tabs Carlyle, Nonis in #IceBucketChallenge

The Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS has taken the NHL by storm this offseason, with players like Sidney Crosby and Mikhail Grabovski getting in on the act. Will Randy Carlyle be next?

Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge to a whole other level.

In this awesome video posted on Instagram Sunday, the former Toronto Maple Leafs — now members of the New York Islanders — complete the viral challenge and nominate two ex-bosses turned rivals: Leafs general manager Dave Nonis and head coach Randy Carlyle.

Grabovski was bought out by the Leafs in July 2013 after a tumultuous season in Toronto, during which both Nonis and Carlyle were critical of the Belarusian centre. Sunday’s challenge could be considered a little bit of payback.

Originating in Boston, the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral among Boston athletes as a means to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and support 29-year-old former Boston College baseball captain Pete Frates, who is unable to speak and is confined to a wheelchair because of the disease.

The charitable effort has gone viral thanks to the Twitter hashtag #IceBucketChallenge and the fact that athletes doing it, including Sidney Crosby, are challenging others to try it.
