Victor Hedman and the Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

Check out Victor Hedman as he accepts the Ice Bucket challenge.

A sensation which has become known as the Ice Bucket Challenge has been sweeping the internet as of late.

For those of you who don’t quite know what that is yet, it is a method of promoting awareness for ALS in which a person will say their name for the camera and then accept the challenge by dumping a bucket full of ice cold water over their heads.

As a reward, they then get to challenge two additional people to step up to the plate and take the challenge themselves.

Yesterday, we showed you video of Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos accepting the challenge. After he had made good on the challenge, while his adorable puppy watched in the background, he challenged two other Tampa Bay Lightning players to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge; center Valtteri Filppula and defenseman Victor Hedman.

Since then, Hedman has accepted the challenge and made good on it. You know you want to see this.

Why don’t you take a look for yourselves? Here is a look at defenseman Victor Hedman accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge he received from Lightning captain Steven Stamkos.


After making good on the challenge, Hedman has now laid down the gauntlet for former Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Teddy Purcell and St. Louis Blues left wing Alex Steen.

The bucket is now in your court, gentlemen.
