It came from the last person anyone would expect, but the latest hockey viral video was of no other than J.J. Watt, who plays for the Houston Texans of the NFL: The short clip depicts Watt with some nice stick-handling and footwork, before a through-the-legs dangle and a nice shot to finish it off. Watt tweeted the link out on Tuesday, addressing it to a certain NHL star, making it clear that he wants to head for the big stage.
Watt was drafted 11th overall by the Texans in the 2011 NFL Entry Draft, and in 2012, led the NFL in sacks with 20.5. Watt will be a free agent after the 2014-15 season, so it is possible that the Jets will be in contract talks with the 24-year old on a long-term deal. (No, we don’t mean the Jets from New York.)
