The NHL All-Star scores goals for the Sabres, but can apparently sing and play guitar.
Ryan O'Reilly showed off his musical talents in a recent video with Max Kerman, vocalist and guitarist for the Arkells. The Canadian rock band is coming to Artpark on Aug. 19 and jokingly tweeted the video as O'Reilly's audition tape for the gig.
Congratulations, O'Reilly. We can't wait to see you grace the stage and the ice:
Arkells at @ArtparkNY. August 19.
Here's @BuffaloSabres' Ryan O'Reilly's audition tape for the gig 🎸🎸🎸.

The Arkells song O'Reilly masterfully covers is "Leather Jacket." Those in the Twittersphere seemed to dig it, but you can compare it to the original tune and decide for yourself.
The tweet got plenty of likes and retweets, along with a plethora of humorous comments:
