Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan took to the ice to play a little hockey on Wednesday, practicing with the San Jose Sharks for about 30 minutes.
Morgan played junior hockey for the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey before giving up the sport to focus on baseball about a decade ago. He handled himself well, and even scored a goal on Sharks backup Thomas Greiss during a shootout contest.
Sharks star Joe Thornton characterized Morgan’s performance as “Not bad. It was better than I thought.”
You can read more details in Mike Halford’s post over at PHT, and the always engaging Morgan talks about the experience in an entertaining interview with CSNBayArea below.
