The 'stache bros are at it again. By now, we all know that Justin Bieber’s skills include more than just singing, with his on-ice talent spilling out into the hockey universe as well. But does the long-time Leafs fan have what it takes to go skate to skate with Vladimir Putin? Auston Matthews' Justin Bieber comments seem to suggest he doesn’t think so.\nIn a recent interview with Men in Blazers, Matthews revealed that his fellow moustache aficionado is actually a skilled hockey player.\nAnd a goal-hungry player, at that.\n“He’s a good player,” Matthews stated in the interview.\n“He’s small, but he’s pretty fast and he’s got good hands. He loves to score goals. Loves to score goals. Doesn’t believe in assists.”\nSounds to us like Bieber's an asset on the ice, if a little selfish.\nPrior to this, Washington Capitals top goalscorer Alexander Ovechkin admitted that Russian president Vladimir Putin, who apparently averages eight goals per game, is the world’s best hockey player.\nWhen subsequently asked how the Biebs stacks up to the world leader, Matthews jokingly said: “I guess I’ll put him at number two, for my own safety.”\nGood call, AM34.\nWhile he may not be eight-goals-per-game good, the Biebs can certainly show Jimmy Fallon a thing or two.\nView this post on Instagram Rog Writes: I fell in love with Hockey the first day I moved to America. It was like seeing Premier League with amplifiers turned up to 11. Honor of a lifetime to partner with @nhl and @jagermeisterusa on this series, which premieres tomorrow at 1 P.M.

What an atmosphere last night to kick off the season. #goleafsgo A post shared by Auston Matthews (@austonmatthews) on Oct 4, 2018 at 11:48am PDT\nThough, if the team is taking Mitch Marner’s social media blackout suggestion, perhaps they’ll never find out where they rank next to a Canadian musician and a Russian president\nAs for those fans in LA who booed Bieber and his Leafs jersey last weekend, maybe he just needs to challenge them to a little puck in order to get even?
