Watch Prince William’s wrist shot here.
Prince William wowed Canadians with his multi-lingual greetings during the royal couple’s visit to Canada’s Northwest Territories over the weekend.
But while the Duke of Cambridge was brushing up on his French and a pair of tribal languages, he should have popped in his VHS copy of Canadian legend Wayne Gretzky’s 1986 instructional video, Hockey My Way.
On Tuesday William had a go at street hockey a group of adoring fans in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. He fired three unobstructed wrist shots from about 15 feet away but finished his shift without a goal.
Naturally, 20-year-old goalie Calvin Lomen complimented the Duke, because it would be uncouth to show up royalty.
“He looked like he knew what he was doing. I heard him say he doesn’t know how to play, but it seemed like he had a natural talent if he practiced more.”
In related news, the Washington Capitals still a bit of salary cap flexibility, and are always looking to add more depth at forward.
