08:18 AM ET 09.12 | First, it is more likely we'll see Justin Bieber singing the anthem at an ECHL game than skating in one, but it seems he'll have the option. [Bieber] has been offered a contract by the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL. "Yes, we would play him if he was up for it," coach Matt O'Dette told NHL.com. "I have seen video on him and he does have some hockey skills." According to the team's website, "The Bakersfield Condors and Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Matt O'Dette announced [Tuesday] that they have offered hit-recording artist/RW Justin Bieber an amateur tryout contract for [2012-13]." ... [Bieber] is described as having "soft hands, a good skating stride, and a devastating wrist shot capable of beating NHL caliber goaltenders."

he's a scrawney little Candian kid that is under the mistaken notion that he has some manner of "street cred" (I heard my kids say that phrase) and keeps making records to provethat his indeed:
thug & gangster
and not at all a tissue weight pop star with about as much soul as Pat Boone in 1962

Wouldn't Pat have made a great Scott Steven's type D-man? Tough, stand-up guy. Of course I'm not serious. My God, a Justin Bieber hockey thread. The world as we know it has come to an end. The Mayans were right and it ain't even December 21!

Good thing you quantified with 1962, because Pat's metal album is lights out!
