Sporting a customized Leafs jersey with a white bucket, the Biebs gives the late-night talk-show host a lesson on the basics. Before taking the ice, he relates to Fallon, who dawns a New York Rangers uniform, some of the instruments of the game. Specifically, he informs him that hockey is played with a hard rubber disc known as a “puck”.
Once on the ice, the Bieber, who’s skated with the Maple Leafs, tries to give Fallon a skating drill. Fallon does his best Bambi impression and fails miserably. The lesson tailspins from there. What follows is a montage of Fallon joking, scooting, and dragging along the surface of the ice.
The two later have a scoring competition with a goalie only known as Rob. Bieber wears a Go Pro camera on his helmet. And as he shows off his dangles to a late-night American audience, the pop star inadvertently reveals that he plays hockey with his head down. Of course, in the end, Bieber wins the shootout and takes a victory lap on the back of a zamboni.
Bieber made hockey headlines earlier this year after accepting a breakaway challenge from St. Louis Blues’ cup-winning goaltender, Jordan Binnington.
The two are set to go head-to-head in a 10-shot shootout. Bieber wins if he scores once, if not, Binnington wins. The victor will receive $10,000 to donate to a charity of their choice.
So far, there’s been no word of when the challenge will take place.
