Voicing the gratitude of many professional hockey players, the Edmonton Oilers' Andrew Ference thanked hockey fans who yell, "Shooot!"

Sometimes I get the puck right in front of the other team's net. Their goalie falls down, I'm all alone and the net is wide open, and I think, 'What do I do now?'- Andrew Ference

Ference also called upon fans to come up with a more subtle signal — one that won't tip off the opposing team that a shot may be coming.

But his overall message was gratitude to the many fans who help players out by telling them to shoot the puck.
