Hockey fan gets tattoo of famous, hilarious Ilya Bryzgalov quote

Deemed the most interesting man on Trade Deadline, Ilya Bryzgalov says he believes aliens walk amongst us, and says he even has insider information on it.

Ilya Bryzgalov provided no shortage of memorable and hilarious quotes in his 10-year NHL career and now one of them will live on with a (supposed) fan for the rest of their life.

Twitter user “M” posted a photo of a tattoo they had gotten of one of Bryzgalov’s most memorable quotes. In 2012 Bryzgalov was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers and was asked by a reporter what the biggest threat was that the Penguins had, to which Bryzgalov quipped:

“You know, I’m not afraid of anything. I’m only afraid of bear, but bear in the forest.”

That inspired this great and very committed tattoo.

And to make this fan’s day complete, Bryzgalov saw that tweet and responded with his support.
