Navy SEALs Training Hockey Players?

Rodney Dangerfield once said: I went to a fight the other night, and a hockey game broke out. Now replace fight with BUD/S. Yes, a bunch of crazy SEALs trained some hockey players: 

Buffalo Sabres

For the three dozen prospects of the Buffalo Sabres NHL team — from rookie first-round draft picks Mikhail Grigorenko, Zemgus Girgensons and Mark Pysyk to the returning members of the Rochester Americans, the Sabres’ top minor-league team — development camp started out as a day at the beach.

The Sabres enlisted the Navy SEALs to put their players through perhaps the most strenuous fitness workout of their lives.

“I was scared so I Googled Navy SEALs and watched some videos,” left winger Marcus Foligno said, “and then I was more scared. I tried to go to bed at 10 and went to bed at 1. That’s how scared I was.”

I’ll bet you were scared. Good luck in your next season. . .

  1. That’s all we need. A hockey team that can cut throats, break necks and hang a goalie upside down from the goal. Ought to be fun watching this.
