In what will undoubtedly go down as one of the best sports photos of 2017, 6’6 defenseman Chris Pronger did what many of us have dreamed of doing ever since the shaggy haired teenager got into the spotlight. Over the weekend, the NHL All-Star game took place and one of those games was a celebrity All-Star game. This was a game that had a blend of professional hockey players and celebrities. One celebrity? Justin Bieber.
Bieber happens to be a solid athletes but Chris Pronger saw this as an opportunity. And when that opportunity came, Pronger took it. Right smack in the middle of the game Pronger gave Bieber a back check against the boards that Bieber is definitely still feeling today. And the picture of it is worth a thousand words.
Unfortunately for Pronger he may face serious discipline for it but something tells me he doesn’t mind. Even Pronger said, “I was giving him a back massage.” As the photo below indicates, that’s one hell of a back massage Mr. Pronger!
