A Whole New Approach: Texans' J.J. Watt scores in charity hockey event
Saturday June 27th, 2015

What can't J.J. Watt do?

It's really not news that the Houston Texans defensive end is a freakish athlete. And now, we've learned he's also a decent skater and left-handed shooter with a pretty decent slapshot.

Wisconsin, Watt's alma mater and the university of his native state, hosted a charity hockey game Friday and let him take the ice. He grew up playing hockey, and it showed as Watt squared up for a slapshot in a shootout and shook the back of the net with relative ease. You've heard the LeBron tight end what-if's – but what if Watt skated along someone's blue line in the NHL?

Ok, well, he got a little help from the goaltender, former Badger Brian Elliott of the St. Louis Blues. But top shelf? Good for you, Justin James Watt.

We'd get out of the way, too.
