Winnipeg Jets star Patrik Laine is a man of many things - a great hockey player, a hero in Manitoba and a humble character with so much class and personality.
Apparently, Laine is also the central figure of a epic film that stars his Jets teammates and other Winnipeg employees. A parody video of 'Greased Lightning' from the film Grease was constructed by Jesse Pollock and Luca Celebre of TSN's BarDown. The music, singing, dancing and lyrics are all on point.
Have a look at 'Greased Laine' below.
A simply excellent parody that mimicked what John Travolta and his T-Birds sang made famous in the legendary musical that came out 40 years ago. If a Grease 3 movie is to ever take place, we now know that Laine is capable of being the central figure in the film.
The Jets drafted Laine second overall in the 2016 draft, going after the Toronto Maple Leafs passed on the big Finnish sniper by opting to select center Auston Matthews instead. But that worked out just fine for Winnipeg, as Laine is coming off a 44-goal season and is only 19 away from 100 for his career.
The Jets reached the playoffs in 2018 thanks in large part to the contributions from Laine. They went to the Western Conference Final before bowing out to the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in five games, but the pieces are there for Winnipeg to win its first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
Laine and the Jets stand at 2-1-0 as the prepare for a big road tilt against the Nashville Predators on Thursday - the team Winnipeg eliminated in the second round of the playoffs last year.
The Jets and Predators are the consensus picks to win the Western Conference, and it's really a tossup when it comes to debating who the better team is. But if a race were to ever take place between the two, a smart man would put his money on Greased Laine.
