Often players on-ice get to enjoy their spotlight moment during their professional years; it depends on how they capitalize on it. As for Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry, he got to relish in two iconic moments during the recent Pens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning game.

The first big news that shook the NHL world was his epic goalie goal that marked the franchise’s first celebratory moment. His second highlight moment came when he discreetly snatched Brandon Hagel’s hockey stick and broke it into pieces during the first-period scrum.

The moment was celebrated all over social media, as he did it quite quietly. Surprisingly no one noticed him going on with his ‘important’ mission as everyone’s focus, including the officials, was on stopping the fight. His mischievous move however got caught on 4k camera as fans noticed him on X video replaying the moment.

During the early first period when the scrum broke, Tristan Jarry cautiously skated toward the fight and stole Brandon Hagel’s stick while he was busy shoving other Pens players. Jarrty slammed the stick against his goalpost, shattering it to pieces. The 25-year-old forward didn’t even notice his stick getting stolen and in the next move he found it broken.

Luckily for Jarry, no one caught him in the act otherwise there would have been a penalty moment for breaking the player’s stick. Some fans even stated that it would have been great if he didn’t have spare hockey sticks on the bench, the moment would have been more iconic that way. While one commented, “Fleury taught him well”, honoring the star goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and his antics.
