Ariana Grande being hit by a hockey puck as a 5-year-old hockey fan is not news I expected to see today
The story we never knew we needed.
We learned about two more skills Ariana Grande can add to her resume after a news story from 1998 emerged in which a 5-year-old Grande rode the Zamboni at a Florida Panthers game.
I just saw a picture of @ArianaGrande riding the Zamboni @FlaPanthers game in 1998, but the real story is that, by the age of 5, she had already been struck by two pucks at NHL games. She was actually the first person to be hit by a puck in the Panthers' new arena #FlaPanthers pic.twitter.com/9h1xSSPN7W— Mike Commito (@mikecommito) February 9, 2019
Grande was also the first person to be struck by a puck in the Panthers new arena, and it happened shortly after she was hit for the first time. The story reads:
“her mom, Joan Grande-Butera was telling Insider about a game last January when her daughter was hit in the right wrist by an errant Gord Murphy shot when — believe it or not — she was hit again. This time by a puck fired from an unidentified Tampa Bay player.”
Grande saw the re-emergence of the news story and it was great.

This is all great. Now we just need Grande to release an album of hockey tunes in honor of this moment.
