Did you miss Gritty playing Jenga? Scott Hartnell sure didn't


Gritty has certainly kept himself busy during quarantine and continues to find ways to keep the fun alive. 

On the agenda for today was a classic game of Jenga … but he played by himself. The Flyers went live on Instagram and their in-host arena Andrea Helfrich joined the party to feed questions and block suggestions for the mascot — who was clearly in the zone and couldn’t pause to read comments. 

It drew in a lot of attention. Some from other mascots around the NHL and mostly Flyers fans — but a familiar face even needed to check in on his friend. 

*Scott Hartnell enters the chat* 

The beloved former-Flyer joined in on the fun and to see how his friend was doing. 


Honestly, kudos to Gritty for building such a solid tower. Jenga isn’t easy with regular hands, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be with paws. 

Eventually, the tower did fall — but apparently the mascot will be back on Instagram tomorrow with a new activity. I hope he’s coloring or cooking, personally, but any Gritty content is content I can’t wait to see.
