Streaker hits the ice during intermission of Flames-Sharks game (updated w/ video)
It’s rare occurrence for a streaker in a hockey game. But, it happens.
Twitter erupted moments ago with reports of a streaker taking to the ice during the second intermission of the Calgary Flames-San Jose Sharks game in Calgary.
He wasn’t fully naked, according to Twitter reports.
Streaker alert. Poor buddy (in shorts, mind you) made it all the way to centre ice before the "ice patrol" snagged him. A good 30 second run— Kristen Anderson (@KdotAnderson) March 7, 2013
Updated with video (h/t Puck Daddy):
This isn’t the first time this has happened at a Flames game. One infamous incident occurred in October of 2002, when a fan - wearing only red socks - slipped on the ice and hit his head, knocking himself unconscious. He needed to be taken off the ice on a stretcher.
