If there is anything that the movie Happy Gilmore taught us, it's that hockey and golf can go hand in hand. 

During the playoffs especially, we aren't allowed to forget that many hockey players will be playing golf in the off-season, some sooner than others.

Countless tweets around "do-or-die" games poke fun at the losers, saying they will be able to trade their sticks for clubs, their pucks for balls and hit the links instead of the arena. So many that we thought, "Is golf the only thing hockey players do in the off-season?".

Turns out no.

Here we bring you...

10 things hockey players do in the off season besides play golf


1. They do laundry
