NHL Player Tries Olympic Figure Skating

I’m kristi, yamaguchi. I’m the 1992 Olympic gold Medalist and women’s figure skating Two-time, World Champion Bret Heta caen and I’m a two-time olympian and Stanley cup champion played 17 seasons in the NHL and over a thousand games we’ve been married for 16 years now I guess you can say we’re like the real life cutting-edge couple the hockey player and figure skater I’ll be interested to see how he performs because it is a lot different I mean you want to want to see me on hockey skates as a powerful and fast skater He’s gonna have to translate that into grace. Let’s do this. I’m not happy about it. Let’s do it. Let’s Start with the basics so a nice long arabesque on the backward Edge and Then we’ll move on to something a little more difficult leaving the ice a Waltz jump was the first basic jump in figure skating What’s skating without a spin so a to fit Spin is the basic first Spin that you’ll learn on the ice Yeah, you me the balance you need the agility to kind of hold that spin position and go I Thought I did better than I thought I would I mean I didn’t think I was gonna do all that I thought was gonna go down, but I stayed up. I didn’t fall so I’ll take that as a victory I think we can work on the grace and a little bit of the pointing of the toes But yeah kind of better than I thought you have a scorer. Yeah, I think your score was something like you know 6.39 you’re setting out of tanning no, out of like 200 Stick to hockey you

Jane Cheng · February 12, 2018 at 2:41 am

DeJ Bi · February 12, 2018 at 7:59 am

Angie Matthews · February 12, 2018 at 11:55 am

Michelle Santos · February 12, 2018 at 5:38 pm

She didn't age.. Wow!

a a · February 12, 2018 at 6:28 pm

Imagine one hockey player starts doing this by himself when the game's in process… wow, that would get everybody's attention..

Gloria Sheen · February 12, 2018 at 6:32 pm

i dont know what she is talking about, he did amazing

Guitar Girl · February 13, 2018 at 1:47 am

this is good, you guys should try a field hockey player trying to play on ice. That would be cool

HiennyAtYourService · February 13, 2018 at 2:38 am

this was tooo cute.

Maximus Lee · February 13, 2018 at 2:39 am

what about the reverse? you know,,, figure skater trying Ice Hockey ๐Ÿ˜›

HenryDavidT · February 13, 2018 at 5:20 am

I am a bit surprised a professional Stanley Cup winner hockey player was THAT awkward. True, the two sports are quite different; still, I had though he would be able to jump, dance, & do many things much more comfortably —- even if not artistically perfect like Yamaguchi — given his extensive background on ice….

MissMargaret · February 13, 2018 at 3:11 pm

Love the "Cutting Edge" reference!

Wolfgang Von Zubaz · February 13, 2018 at 9:49 pm

When I played hockey the instructors at the power skating clinics were always women, and always figure skaters

Leanna Orr · February 14, 2018 at 12:06 am

I totally want them to reverse it now!!!!

ramram92 · February 14, 2018 at 5:18 am

I love how cute they are ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Kimberly Jones · February 14, 2018 at 9:46 am

Mary Carla · February 15, 2018 at 7:39 pm

Well that was fun.

madeline hanna · February 16, 2018 at 12:25 am


Masha Kalinkina · February 16, 2018 at 1:27 am

I was gonna say… why is he sitting so close to her…!? haha Duh. Dang, that is so amazing. He looks like he's never been on the ice before; his partner's skill/craft is So advanced & a whole different ballpark.

Obviously Anonymous · February 16, 2018 at 5:45 am

I laughed so hard at how happy he was about a 6.39 score

MrZee · February 16, 2018 at 8:39 am

This is just 3 minutes of a married couple flirting… I don't hate it. xD

Christina Cueto · February 17, 2018 at 2:24 am

I feel sorry for her. Sheโ€™s capable of skating faster, but has to slow it down to teach him. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Adrian802 · February 19, 2018 at 5:45 am

Do a waltz jump to avoid a cross check or some sort. Hmm then Hockey will become a Ballet on ice

Habibatou Koureichi · February 19, 2018 at 2:14 pm

I'm supprised at the husband

Valenchina · February 19, 2018 at 7:10 pm

Omo, i just watched her Videos from 92! And she is just gorgeous!! And now seeing her in this video Iโ€™m pleasantly surprised how bubbly and cute she is! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Yeet · February 19, 2018 at 9:52 pm

Leena Ahmed · February 19, 2018 at 10:44 pm

taua sulusi · February 21, 2018 at 8:59 am

Clara Schryer · February 21, 2018 at 10:50 pm

Catira App · February 22, 2018 at 7:00 am

nerowolf1234 · February 22, 2018 at 11:52 pm

From 11:41 – 11:53. Under 15 minutes that is pretty damn good

tugboat · February 23, 2018 at 4:44 am

They are so adorable! ๐Ÿ˜€ And he did pretty good for being in such a rough sport…

4eightyvolt · February 23, 2018 at 11:56 am

I have an urge to watch the cutting edge now. I would never admit this to my buddies but i secretly love that movie.

Kerri Wheelock · February 23, 2018 at 7:32 pm

iโ€™m a (bad) figure skater and also a whimp and i think he jumps higher than me (feel free to make fun of me)

Jerry N. · February 23, 2018 at 8:28 pm

Oh I was surprised they were married so long and he never attempted figure skating before. :O

voici je · February 24, 2018 at 6:13 pm

after 16 years of mariage…still…. playing with each other….perfect 10 !!!

Andy Tang · February 25, 2018 at 4:52 pm

I see these types of couples a lot lately.

Lena Z · February 25, 2018 at 11:29 pm

Not bad, not bad at all

Kitty Pop · February 26, 2018 at 2:30 am

She hasnโ€™t aged at all, she looks incredible

remy paraskovia · February 26, 2018 at 5:52 pm

"Stick to hockey " LOL Savage Kristi

Betty Bane · February 27, 2018 at 1:54 am

Heโ€™s wearing sweat pants… what a dad

Mai Le · February 28, 2018 at 5:51 am

That waltz jump is better than mine and he can spin unlike me

kel m · March 1, 2018 at 2:04 am

"cutting-edge couple" oh my god

Angelica the Awesome · March 2, 2018 at 4:40 am

Reminds me of the 1992 movie โ€œCutting Edgeโ€.

Andrea Soo · March 2, 2018 at 12:08 pm

Wow, he's a little bit of a natural there

churchsnake · March 3, 2018 at 7:38 am

But Buzzfeed… Some NHL players take figure skating lessons all the time so they can learn more about their edges. I guess it's cool video for people who don't know that about hockey players though.

T T · March 4, 2018 at 9:30 pm


Localindiangirl · March 5, 2018 at 3:20 am

Wait, they're married?????????

Ali Daynes · March 6, 2018 at 1:19 am

You know Canada has a whole show about hokey players trying to figure skate

Afg Romeo · March 11, 2018 at 10:11 pm

Harding > Yamaguchi

workaholic888 · March 27, 2018 at 2:41 pm

I was waiting for Bret to fall so that Kristi can shout "toe pick" at him. So cute though.

Ever Changing Me · April 15, 2018 at 7:59 pm

Lol too funny! As a spectator I have total Respect for both of you!

Capitals fan · April 22, 2018 at 2:23 am

Hockey wins… like he knows how to skate but look how easily be did that

Telly Vin-a · April 29, 2018 at 5:37 am

Jose Franco · May 22, 2018 at 12:20 am

Best couple ๐Ÿ™‚

Bill Beliakoff · May 23, 2018 at 9:02 pm

Stan Makita was or is married to a figure skater that was in the Ice Capades. Sometimes between periods they would skate together for the fans. Makita said the only problem he had was not being able to do some of the moves because he was in hockey skates.

Claudia Millenia · June 10, 2018 at 11:35 am

Not bad because he has ice skating basic..

A A Q · July 2, 2018 at 4:27 pm


Now we need a video where he teaches her how to play hockey.

aaliyah bx · July 6, 2018 at 2:58 am

I keep thinking Yama Gucci

MrAngryJarvey · July 12, 2018 at 9:01 am

I will say. I skate to hockey guys…… figure skating is hard difficult.

Swiss Cheese · July 20, 2018 at 2:33 pm

Bret who? Please send better players not that he was bad but its alright i guess.

Sandra Kindernajova · July 28, 2018 at 7:22 pm

He's good tho ๐Ÿ˜

Isabela Dunlap · August 20, 2018 at 10:31 pm

i love that he wore his elbow pads hahah

Owl 128 · August 23, 2018 at 9:50 am

Just wondering, is it harder transitioning from figure skating to hockey or hockey to figure skating? I might join a hockey class, and I can figure skating a bit

oofahman mooch · August 25, 2018 at 4:02 pm

Too funny!! Loved it!

Glazed Potaeto · September 10, 2018 at 8:29 pm

He looks so uncomfortable in those figure skates ๐Ÿ˜‚ Their so different compared to hockey skates

TitaniumLiquids · September 29, 2018 at 3:17 am

1:22 HAHAHAHAHAHA, what??? "That hurts my feet" from a hockey player??? AWESOME!!! XD XD XD

DCJC17 · October 4, 2018 at 8:33 pm

Literally a whole tv show was made around this topic and some of the nhl players became pretty good at it. Battle of the blades. If you can find it online check it out

minasees · October 22, 2018 at 1:12 am

theyโ€™re so precious! also he actually did really good!

Evelynwashere 1 · December 2, 2018 at 11:16 pm

Okay he looks like a giant. He's terrible ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

HAT · February 13, 2019 at 10:03 am

I think he did great ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Herb Lison · February 14, 2019 at 3:01 pm

I wonder if they could have been competitive pairs skaters. Mr. Hedican certainly dwarfs Ms. Yamaguchi.

Brendan Beckett · February 19, 2019 at 6:04 pm

A hockey player married to a figure skater for 16 years and he never tried figure skating until now?

Christopher Lee · February 23, 2019 at 2:27 am

Awesome couple they make.

Elmyra Duff · February 28, 2019 at 12:09 pm

Their kids are going to be Olympic speed skaters xD Holy Ice Trinity

Donghyuckie *Full sun* · June 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

Can you hear my heartbeat

Mateusz G · July 6, 2019 at 1:58 am

now folks this is a pure definition of MILF

็•ˆ็•ถ็•ˆ็•ถๆถผ · August 5, 2019 at 9:35 pm

He should never shave his beard

Amanda Lockridge · September 23, 2019 at 9:57 pm

I just got into just some basic splits training, learning how hard it is just to lift a leg into certain positions, and I cannot imagine the raw power that goes into figure skating. And the sheer control. Figure skaters are superhuman.

Mikledeepikle - · September 26, 2019 at 9:06 am

They were sitting so close together I thought something was up.

Attack on dust · October 3, 2019 at 4:49 pm

"we call everything on ice love"

if you know, you know ๐Ÿคง

Janet Smith · October 7, 2019 at 12:46 am

Kind of understandable that folks could have a hard time equating figure skating โ›ธ as a sport ๐ŸฅŽ when the participants are dressed in sequins and feathers.
