(Video) Ever Seen An NHL Player Karaoke An Enrique Iglesias Song? Want To?

(Note: The performance begins about two minutes into the video)

That, my friends, is Florida Panthers winger Kris Versteeg doing the karaoke equivalent of a hate crime on the Enrique Iglesias ballad, “Hero” (or giving the abysmal song its proper due, depending on your point of view — I’m leaning towards the latter myself).

This mind-blowing performance occurred on Tuesday night at the Florida Panthers Foundation’s fight against Pediatric Cancer after Versteeg auctioned off a karaoke performance. Whoever put up the cash that paved the way for this exercise in vocal prowess sure got their money’s worth.
