Former NFL player Reggie Wayne watched his first-ever hockey game during Game 7, fans couldn’t stop laughing at what he had to say about it

History was about to be made, with the Edmonton Oilers looking to become the first team since 1942 to win the Stanley Cup after losing the first three games of the Final series.

The Florida Panthers looked to win the organization’s first championship ever, and many in the world of hockey called it the biggest game in the sport’s history.

Everyone who loves hockey tuned in to watch the game between the Oilers and the Panthers.

The Stanley Cup Finals is often called the greatest thing you could watch as a sports fan, and when it goes to a Game 7, it also attracts a lot of people who usually don’t watch a lot of hockey.

And on Monday, Reggie Wayne decided to watch his first-ever game of hockey, and what he had to say about it was absolutely hilarious.

Reggie Wayne played 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL, breaking several franchise records.

But apparently, he hasn’t been a big fan of hockey.

In the early stages of Game 7 between the Panthers and the Oilers on Monday, Reggie Wayne said on X, formerly Twitter, ’This might be the first time I’ve watched a hockey game. Absolutely no idea what the rules are.’

But as it turns out, hockey has a new fan.

Just an hour after his tweet about watching his first-ever hockey game, he hilariously said, ’This hockey stuff is wild.’

To end his first hockey night, Wayne congratulated the Florida Panthers.

”Congrats Florida… I was entertained,” he said.
