Watt A Shot

Blake Geoffrion, formerly a Blue Jackets scout, was holding a charity game last night to benefit the Wisconsin Health Burn Center.

Columbus forward Jack Skille was there, but so was an unlikely skater who ultimately converted on a penalty shot.

Yes, that’s JJ Watt of the Houston Texans.

And that’s Brian Elliott in goal. The St. Louis netminder honed his skill of making opponents look cool in the NHL skills challenge at the All-Star Game in Columbus this year.

(Elliott would later score on a penalty shot himself.)

So other than the poor schmuck who showed up in a Minnesota jersey and was dragged by Geoffrion off the ice for comedic effect, everyone was a winner in this one.

*Note: This article was edited to reflect that Geoffrion has left the CBJ. Thanks, Alison!
