    What do you do when you're bored at work and have a few minutes to spare? This Russian ice hockey goalie from "Traktor" decided to show off his dance moves. And if you've always thought hockey was a brutal sport, just watch him float like a butterfly before returning to his post, ready to sting like a bee...or, you know, save like a goalie.

    The video shows the goalkeeper by his post during a momentary pause in play… but then suddenly a classical tune starts playing.

    He just couldn’t stand still and broke into a smooth skating dance demonstrating some really nice ice skating moves to the delight of the onlookers.

    Although someone in the stands did scream for him to stop before the opponent team scored!

    The Traktor club commented on the goalkeeper’s performance saying that, “Unfortunately, we cannot say which of the goalkeepers danced because there was no number on the shirt.”

    As for his reason, the club said that the Russian figure skating championship is due to take place in the city of Chelyabinsk in December 2016.

    “The city is breathing with anticipation of the championship and apparently our goalkeeper is too. He decided to have some fun and show what he can do. We think it is really funny!” Traktor club commented.

    Skate on, man…skate on!
