Only a few days after visiting the Boston Bruins, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski returned to a hockey game on Wednesday... to play dodgeball.

Gronk showed up at an ECHL game in Estero, Fla., between the Florida Everblades and the Fort Wayne Komets and somehow got roped into a game of dodgeball during intermission.

Knowing the recently crowned Super Bowl champion, he probably didn't need much convincing.

Good thing Gronkowski threw on the helmet—this dodgeball game actually looked pretty intense.

Gronkowski also had an eventful appearance with the Bruins on Saturday night, showing off the Lombardi Trophy and "Gronk Spiking" a puck into the ice.
