Minor league hockey team offer tryout to Justin Bieber


Just when you thought that pop singer Justin Bieber couldn't get any luckier, a minor league hockey team has offered him a tryout for the upcoming 2012-2013 season.

The Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL have offered Bieber a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try to minor league hockey out for size.

When I need my Justin Bieber minor league hockey news, I only get it from E! online:
"Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness," Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Matt O'Dette said in a statement. "We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario."

He adds, "I've scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us. Plus, he's a right-handed shot, which we've been looking to add. I think if we paired him on a line with [Robby] Dee and [Peter] Boyd we'd be tough to beat."

General manager of the Condors Matt Riley tells E! News that he has reached out Justin's manager Scooter Braun and is "hopeful" that Biebs will take them up on their offer.
If you remember, Outside the Boxscore posted a video of Bieber skating with the Toronto Maple Leafs during a practice and to be fair, he could be a decent minor league player.
