Conor McGregor makes surprise NHL appearance

Fury is my number one heavyweight – Khabib

Although Conor McGregor was arrested for allegedly damaging a fan’s phone this week, he made a surprise appearance before an NHL match.

Conor McGregor made an unexpected NHL appearance on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) 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.


Although McGregor was arrested for allegedly damaging a fan’s cell phone in Miami earlier this week, he seemed to be in high spirits.

The Bruins entered Saturday 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.
