Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is a rookie sensation. He also has one of the most intimidating last names since Mister Mxyzptlk terrorized Superman.
So fans decided to create some Internet shorthand for Gostisbehere in order to write about his outstanding season with the Flyers: a ghost emoji plus a bear emoji equals Gostisbehere. Which naturally has become a meme.
On Friday, Gostisbehere and the Flyers invited some active military into their locker room for a meet and greet. One of those honored guests was Reddit user ‘DJMcSkillet,’ who not only hoped the Calder hopeful would autograph his helmet but requested that Gostisbehere draw a Ghost Bear.
Which he in fact did.
Mr. McSkillet reports that the Flyers defenseman “spent a good minute working on the bear.” And that certainly shows.
No word on how long he spent on the octopus.
