Some Canadians Just Played Hockey On The North Pole. Obviously

Posted: Updated:

A couple of Canadian icebreakers just reached the North Pole. Their next move was obvious.

The crew of CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent and the CCGS Terry Fox arrived at the North Pole Wednesday night and proceeded to play some hockey.

There was also an Ice Bucket Challenge.

And, according to an officer from the St-Laurent, Santa showed up. The Huffington Post Canada was unable to confirm that Saint Nick paid the crew a visit.

The ships are on a scientific mission, but are also part of Canada's push to assert its sovereignty over the Arctic. During his Arctic tour last week Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a warning about Russia's militarization of the region.

Time for a '72 Series rematch? On the Pole? Santa can be the ref.
