Red Wings’ Thomas Tatar Falls During First Skate At LCA [VIDEO]

DETROIT (WWJ) – A rookie move? It appears the Red Wings left winger isn’t always as steady on his feet as one would think a pro hockey player would be.

The Wings’ Thomas Tatar got his first look at the new arena ceiling during his maiden voyage on ice at Little Caesars Arena — captured on an overhead camera at the arena.

Skate guards were the culprit. The covers intended to protect the skate’s blades off the ice are indeed not intended to be worn on the ice.

“Here is something what [sic] will make you smile,” Tatar posted on Instagram.

With hashtags that include #damnyouskateguards and #whatanidiot — no doubt Tatar has no trouble being the first to laugh at his mistake.
