GIF: Nyquist takes a soccer ball to the junk during pre-game warmups


Aside from Gustav Nyquist’s highlight reel goal Monday night, he was the recipient of an unfortunate shot prior to Game 3.

During pre-game warmups in the locker room the Red Wings regularly like to dribble around a soccer ball. Here we see Nyquist doing just that along with what looks to be fellow teammate Damien Brunner… Only instead of dribbling the ball back Nyquist Brunner catches the ball and fires it into Gustav’s lower-body region.

Perhaps this helped Nyquist later on in the game and perhaps they play soccer differently in Switzerland…


UPDATE: We can now confirm it was Damien Brunner who almost destroyed Gustav Nyquist’s chances at ever having children…
