The New York Islanders star forward got caught in a magic trick and it was spectacular. Check out this video of some off ice magic.

Magical is a pretty good adjective to describe Mathew Barzal’s play on the ice for the New York Islanders. The things he can do with the puck on his stick is something that very few players in the league can do.

Yesterday, we learned that Mathew Barzal isn’t only magic on the ice but he also is off the ice as well.

Check out this video of Mathew Barzal being used as a prop in a trick from Justin Flom:

Who else was nervous watching Mat Barzal in this video? When Justin Flom sipped the soda out of his cup I thought for sure, Barzy was going to pour an ice-cold Pepsi all over his brand new suit. Not today.

I have watched it twice through and I’m not sure how Flom was able to do it. If you’re my age, we were blessed with some pretty dope magicians in our time. The David Blaine street magic video is one for the ages. An internet 1.0 special.

Then there was the classic, Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak” which was another classic on the USA Network in the mid 2000s. That’s where I tapped out on magic, or so I thought, until I saw this one with Mat Barzal.

Anything involving Mat Barzal is must-watch material, throw some magic in there and I’m hooked.
