You don't expect to hook water fowl when you're out fishing on your day off, but that's exactly what happened to Lightning forward Pierre-Cedric Labrie Wednesday off the coast of St. Petersburg.
Labrie, along with teammates Anders Lindback and Keith Aulie, were casting their lines when a most uncommon creature got hooked.
I cast one [line], and I guess the pelican just went for it," Labrie explained. "It was epic. I was just like, 'All right. Survival mode. I've got to help him out.' I just reeled him back, unhooked him, and took a picture with him. And just let him go. He was all right, just a little ashamed. It was pretty funny."
Labrie said he wasn't worried about being bitten by the sea bird. "I think he knew I was there to help him.
"I didn't get any fish," Labrie joked. "Just bird."
