The NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout was a hit, unfortunately for Justin Bieber.
The Canadian music artist took part in the celebrity game for Team Gretzky against Team Lemieux, who happened to have former Norris Trophy winner Chris Pronger on the roster.
The 6-foot-6 Pronger inflicted many a bone-crunching hit against opposing players during his NHL career, which Bieber (sort of) experienced on Saturday night.
Damian Echevarrieta, the vice-president for the NHL’s department of player safety, decided to have some fun with Pronger and Bieber.
Pronger, who was suspended eight times by the NHL during his career, is currently a member of the player safety department.
