Ray Kaunisto, Kalamazoo Wings Player, Sneaks 7 'Meows' Into Interview

Hockey players often face inane questions in media interviews. They need to have a little fun sometimes.

Enter Ray Kaunisto.

The 27-year-old forward with the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings (a Vancouver Canucks affiliate) skilfully snuck seven "meows" into an interview in a video that was posted to YouTube late last month.

"Right meow we came out and hit a few guys quickly there, we've got to get in the corners meow and maybe pass the puck a couple more times down in the neutral zone there meow," he said.

It's a testament to Kaunisto's skill that he managed to keep a straight face the whole time.

The "Meow Game" was made popular by the 2001 film "Super Troopers," in which one officer challenged another to say "meow" 10 times in an interaction with a motorist.

As Greg Wyshynski at Yahoo! Sports pointed out, Atlanta Falcons player Thomas DeCoud played the very same game in a 2012 interview.

Being hockey lovers, we'll hand this round to Kaunisto.
