According to an interview with Spittin’ Chiclets podcast and subsequently published in the the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Pat Maroon and Capitals’ captain Alex Ovechkin held a weigh-off  while inside the Toronto bubble.

Lightning player Alex Killorn recalled the two players finding a scale and doing a weigh-off to see which player was heavier than the other. Ovechkin said there was no way he weighed more than Maroon. (Both players weigh 236 pounds on NHL.com.)

Other players also made bets as to which player would weigh more.

“Everyone had me in the weigh-off,” Maroon recalled. “What a night that was. It was nuts, man. It was good to hang out with those guys.”
