Will Arnett is a pretty funny guy, a great actor, and a definite hockey fan. He has been spotted, as seen here with Louis C.K., at a number of hockey games, and even made a sizable donation to the Winnipeg chapter of the United Way when he stopped in the Manitoba capital to take in a Jets game so that kids could go to Jets games. I happen to like the work that Will Arnett does as an actor, but I'm really starting to appreciate his love for the game of hockey. Being a Canadian, I can't really blame him for loving the sport, but his time in Hollywood could have softened him a little.
We found out Wednesday night that he is perfectly capable of combining hockey with comedy in his sketch dedicated to Brendan Shanahan and his role as the NHL's disciplinarian. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Here's the clip.
My only wish is that he was given more opportunity to have some fun with other NHL personalities. But there's always next season, right?
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
