New York Islanders Mathew Barzal answered questions from fans on the NHL’s Twitter account today. Here are some questions I wish he would have answered.

In terms of giving fans something to watch or interact with while the 2019-20 season is suspended, the NHL is doing a pretty good job. On Monday, fans got to ask New York Islanders forward Mathew Barzal questions.

There were some 130 questions tossed at the 2018 Calder Trophy winner. He answered a few questions. Most were about his love of The Office. While none of the questions answered were breaking news, they were fun and light-hearted and a good distraction on an otherwise boring Monday.

Looking at some of the questions he got, here are some I wish he would have answered.

questions as well as Barzal’s answers here


Lets Eat Celly

It’s random and it makes no sense given the context of scoring a goal in the NHL. Why does he act out eating a bowl full of Froot Loops? (I think it’s Froot Loops because that’s what I would eat.) Maybe you know why. I have no idea and I desperately want to know why he does it, where it came from, and what it’s supposed to mean.

Ping-Pong Touney

The last update we got about the Barzal family ping-pong tournament was that Barzy had “spanked” his dad and “killed” his sister. I think we just need an update on the well-being of his family at this point.


The internet is one hell of a place. I wish he would have attempted to answer this one because I haven’t the slightest clue where to begin with this. I guess I’d rather have fingers for toes? I could pick stuff up off the ground or maybe hang upside down from a tree. That would be cool I suppose?


This one is for my buddy Matt O’Leary. He’s a big Tik-Tok user and I’m sure he’d love to see Barzal on there. I personally have no idea what Tik-Tok is or its purpose and at this point, I’m a little embarrassed to ask.

His Plans For Us

Let’s face it, this is Mathew Barzal’s team. While he doesn’t have all the leverage in his upcoming contract negotiations he’s still in the driver’s seat. What he’s thinking is on every person’s mind who bleeds blue and orange. Just an honest glimpse at what he’s thinking would be great insight.
