One week he's sparring with Floyd Mayweather and the next he's playing in a men's adult league hockey game. Say this about Justin Bieber: At least he's staying active while he gets his career back on track.
The 20-year-old singer posted a video to his Instagram of him on the ice at the Los Angeles Kings Valley Ice Center. In the clip, Bieber takes the puck on a breakaway, pulls of a nice move and scores top shelf. Check it out:
Bieber included a caption ("My dangles were unreal did u see that shot I'm number 20") in addition to some less-than-humble hashtags (#younggretzky #iceicebaby #uthoughtthiswasagame #iknewistillhadit).
All jokes aside, Bieber makes a strong move in this video and scores a nice goal. But who knows how long the camera was on before he made this play.
The Canadian-born Bieber grew up playing hockey and, as a youngster, had dreams of going pro. While he's taken a different part to stardom, he still gets to play now and then. He was even offered a pro contract by the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL.
At least in the video Bieber posted to Instagram he's wearing proper hockey equipment. In February he showed up to an Atlanta-area men's hockey game wearing skinny jeans and a gold chain.
As much as Bieber loves hockey, the sport hasn't shown him the same respect recently. After the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2013 Bieber was called out for stepping on the team's logo in the locker room:

Earlier this year Bieber was the subject of a humorous billboard that was displayed in advance of the contest between the United States and Canada squared in the Sochi Olympics.

Bieber himself didn't find the billboard all that funny:
I guess I'm an easy target for some. I'm still human. I will continue to meet hate with love. It's all about the music. Much love
