If there’s something we love more than seeing hockey players sing the hits of the holiday season, we’d like to find it.
After seeing the San Jose Sharks do it last year, the Florida Panthers are upping the ante (only without the aid of a ventriloquist dummy) by breaking out their rendition of “Jingle Bells.”
You’ll have to check out the Sunrise Sports & Entertainment website to see it, but once you see Ed Jovanovski hamming it up, Jose Theodore lending his smoky eyes to the camera, Erik Gudbranson’s creepy mustache, and Tomas Fleischmann stay as far off key as possible, you’ll thank us later.
The only thing we’re missing out on here is the follow up featuring Kevin Dineen/Dale Tallon duet of “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.” All we know now is that our growing man-crush on the Panthers making a run at the playoffs just got a lot stronger. Nothing beats awkward karaoke.

It’s a special holiday throughout the land and myself and James want to wish all of you our wonderful readers celebrating the day the merriest of Christmases and that you and all your loved ones out there.
Thankfully with the NHL taking a couple days off that means we can do the same and spend it with our families and friends and that’s just what we’re going to do. So if you’re not rocking out by the fireplace to your San Jose Sharks holiday album or unwrapping your brand spankin’ new Florida Everblades Christmas jersey, we’ll hope you’ll take some time out to enjoy the lyrical stylings of the Belfast Giants from Northern Ireland.
You’ve probably watched this a few times already before Christmas but if not, enjoy listening to the best singing hockey players from Northern Ireland as they tackle a Mariah Carey Christmas classic.
Merry Christmas everyone, go on out and enjoy it.
