With a global pandemic suspending sporting events worldwide, athletes suddenly have tons of time on their hands. In the latest installment of our weekly NHL series, we look at how they've been keeping themselves entertained - and in shape - while self-isolating.

Ovi confesses 😢

Alex Ovechkin sat down with Men's Journal and answered a variety of questions, none juicier than, "When is the last time you cried?" Perhaps it was the birth of his son or winning the Stanley Cup. Nope, it was when he watched "The Notebook." You're definitely not alone, Alex.

Matthews virtually visits SickKids 👊

Despite traveling home for self-isolation, Auston Matthews has made an effort to maintain his regular visits to SickKids hospital in Toronto. During a video chat, Matthews dishes on his favorite food, hobbies, and more while clearly making a young fan's day. Bravo.

Identity theft is not a joke, Brendan 😡

After storming onto the scene with a "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" TikTok imitation skit last week, Brendan Gallagher delivered once more, this time recreating an iconic bit from another hit sitcom, "The Office." We eagerly await what comes next from the Habs' forward-turned-actor.

Dustin Brown, homemaker 🏠

Remaining at home has many of us doing things we aren't accustomed to. In Dustin Brown's case, that involves using an iron, much to his wife's surprise.

McCann gets a quick workout in 🐄

Genius, Jared McCann. We simply cannot think of a better way to exercise your calves.

Gagner's hands still in game shape 🚨

Veteran dangler Sam Gagner is spending his time honing his craft. His child would be wise to watch closely, that backhand toe drag has been fooling goalies for years.

Vlasic's very good adventure buddy 🐕

It's important to find ways to unwind during these stressful times, and is there a better method of relaxation than hitting the open water on a paddleboard with your dog? We, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic, don't think so.

Kane kills it on the keys 🎹

Nowadays, those hands are used for scoring goals and throwing haymakers. But back in the day, Evander Kane wowed crowds with his ultra-smooth piano skills. Who would have thought?
