Tip of the cap to you, Elvis.

Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Elvis Merzlikins is a clever guy. He's nothing if not incredibly interesting and unafraid of being himself, which is refreshing for a professional athlete in 2018.

His latest work is suiting up as an old-time hockey goalie and attempting to stop a few pucks. While it doesn't look comfortable in any way, it's super cool to see this in the modern day and age. No wonder they scored so many goals back in the day.

His goalie coach in Lugano, Michael Lawrence, got a kick out of it.

This is just further proof that we need Elvis in North America. ASAP.
