Two NHL players caught a giant sea monster on their day off

You can call it a fish if you want, but if something is so large it dwarfs two massive NHL players, it probably belongs in sea monster territory.

Seriously, just look at this massive sturgeon Winnipeg Jets players Matt Hendricks and Dustin Byfuglien caught in British Columbia’s Fraser River.

That is MASSIVE.  And it looks like a dinosaur. I’m not up on my science, but a quick Google search tells me sturgeon can live up to 100 years if not longer.  Of course, Hendricks and Byfuglien have a lot of respect for stuff way older than them and didn’t actually take the fish home.

Guide company Sturgeon Slayers, which the two used for their fishing expedition, has a strict catch and release policy. They catch the fish, tag it for conservation purposes, and release it back out into the wild.

It’s like fishing, but you don’t actually kill anything, and you get to pet something prehistoric.  What could be more fun?
