Newly-signed Islanders teammates Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski are close friends from their time in Toronto – and a new video made for charity shows off their lighthearted side.
In their years as Toronto Maple Leafs teammates, Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin became close friends – and now that they’re playing for the New York Islanders, they’re showing their sense of humor for a great cause.
In this brief video, Kulemin accepts the “ice bucket challenge” – part of a campaign to raise awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease – by dumping a pail of freezing water over his head. But when he’s done…well, watch the video and see what happens:
Grabovski has always had a humorous side to him, but this should endear him even more to his old fans in Toronto, and his new ones on Long Island.
