Hockey culture doesn't promote fun as much as the other major pro sports do, so when footage surfaces of NHLers showing their personalities, it's a welcome treat.
The San Jose Sharks presented a video earlier this week of forwards Tomas Hertl and Tommy Wingels playing a fun game. They take turns wearing Plantronics noise-blocking headphones while trying to read lips as the other player says various words and expressions.
The result is a hilarious and often adorable exchange. Hertl steals the show with his child-like laughter and increasing volume while takes his turn with the headphones. Watch and enjoy:
Good on the Sharks. There can never be enough of these types of videos.
