Biebs gets up close and personal with former NHL star

LOS ANGELES – Canadian pop star Justin Bieber dropped the microphone and picked up a hockey stick to play in the celebrity game as a part of the NHL All-Star weekend.

While Bieber showcased some skills on the ice, he also got roughed up by former Philadelphia Flyer "tough guy" Chris Pronger.

A picture of Pronger pinning the pop star against the boards while sporting a big smile has gone viral, but Bieber did pick up one goal in the game.
