SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- On his fourth attempt during a hockey breakaway drill, Nyjer Morgan shot the puck past Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss to score in the bottom right corner of the net. Greiss did the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder a favor and let it go in, with Morgan later thanking him.
A giddy Morgan cheered, thrust his stick in the air to celebrate and became a bit wobbly on the ice before recovering. At last, the diehard San Jose fan and former hockey player got the chance to practice with the team he loves -- however brief it was.
"Tony Plush" as he refers to himself, it's a self-created alter ego, stepped out 36 minutes into the hourlong session. He received a little pep talk and some razzing from Sharks captain Joe Thornton beforehand.
