Boston, March 17: Conor McGregor made an unexpected NHL appearance on Saturday (March 16) ahead of St. Patrick's Day.
The Irish UFC fighter dropped the puck ahead of a matchup between the Boston Bruins and Columbus Blue Jackets in Boston.
He was accompanied by a flag and proceeded to shake the hands of players, before hyping up the crowd.
The Bruins entered Saturday (March 16) enduring a three-game losing streak. The Blue Jackets had won their last two games before the contest.
But McGregor seemed to favour Boston, the second-placed team in the Atlantic Division. They have posted a 42-20-9 record in 2018-19.
