Photographer’s Lens Hood Mistaken for a Hockey Puck

Say you’re watching a game of ice hockey when suddenly you realize—along with the not-so-amused players and the refs—that there are two pucks on the ice! That’s exactly what happened during a recent Ontario Reign game:

The second “puck” was, in fact, a harmless lens hood that dropped off a sports photographer’s lens. Play was stalled for a few seconds, and confusion ensued until a ref handed over the errant item to its embarrassed owner.

The ‘puck’ is returned to its embarrassed owner.

I wonder what would have happened if someone had scored with it!
