Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan, originally a hockey player before focussing on baseball, had an opportunity to take part in a practice with San Jose Sharks, his favorite team as a child, on Wednesday afternoon. During the session he was able to try a couple of breakaway attempts against Sharks backup goalie Thomas Greiss, scoring on one of them. Though, when you see the video it's pretty obvious that Griess kind of gave it to him.
Here's a look at at his day on the ice, as well as some reactions from he and the Sharks.
As we pointed out on Monday, before he was drafted in the 33rd round of the 2002 draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates he spent some time in the Western Hockey League playing for the Regina Pats.
