Steve Oleksy breaks his skate, hilarity ensues

During last night’s game against the Canucks, Steve Oleksy lost a skate blade, leaving him hobbled.

Having only one wheel, the Caps defenseman hopped, fell, slid, fell, tumbled and fell before the ref took mercy on him and gave him a hand, shoving him toward the bench so teammate Nate Schmidt could haul him over the wall.

Here’s the action in video form. RMNB has it broken down into gifs for your viewing pleasure.
