Watch: Young Senators fan challenges Brady Tkachuk to floss-off

Ahead of Thursday’s Ottawa Senators-Calgary Flames showdown at Scotiabank Saddledome, a young fan in attendance who backed the visiting squad challenged Brady Tkachuk to a dance-off, and the Senators star accepted.

Technically, it was a “floss-off,” which the young Senators fan made clear with a sign that read, “Hey Chuky, floss off for your stick?”

Standing in the face-off circle, Tkachuk gave it his best flossing effort, but it quickly became clear he was no match, as the kid had mad skills when it comes to the popular new dance.

Knowing he’d been bested, Tkachuk sauntered over to the glass to congratulate the young fan on the performance.

The look on Tkachuk’s face mid-dance is priceless, as he’s clearly having a great time showcasing his best flossing moves, which actually … aren’t that great.

Still, while the kid did not land Tkachuk’s stick — he needed it for the game, after all — the flossing efforts were rewarded in the form of a puck the NHL star tossed over the glass.

Not a bad night out watching some NHL hockey for the youngster, to say the least.
