    It seems that Islanders forward Anthony Beauvillier could be considered a modern day Romeo, as the ice hockey player decided to take to Twitter to start a conversation with actress Anna Kendrick with a simple "Hi". However, the four-year veteran seemingly had no idea what his attempt at internet flirting would lead to.

    Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and New York Islanders left wing Anthony Beauvillier knows it, that's why the 22-year-old decided to try his luck and catch the attention of the 34-year-old "Pitch Perfect" actress Anna Kendrick. Brevity being the soul of wit, the young man was brief and started the conversation with a simple "Hi" tweet.

    Most likely Beauvillier did not expect what followed next, as Twitter users thought that the ice hockey player's message was way too short and decided to help his case. The wingmen responded to Beauvillier's tweet with tall tales to impress the actress.

    ​Some of the users decided to play a trump and impress the celebrity with Anthony's sport (and money) achievements.

    ​Fortunately, the efforts were rewarded, as Kendric replyed a little bit later, thanking Anthony and Twitter users for entertaining her. The Islanders forward's tweet itself gained 29 thousand likes.

    ​Who knows, maybe it's Beauvillier's big chance and in the future he won't be so shy.
