Have You Seen This? When hockey is life

OH, CANADA Just because youre 3 years old doesnt mean you cant have a life passion.

Just ask 3-year-old Eli Graveline from Sudbury in Ontario, Canada. He is so obsessed with hockey that he started practicing his puck-handling skills in his crib, and the internet and hockey community are pleased as punch.

At 3, Eli already has at least a year of hockey obsession under his belt. The video of him playing hockey in his crib has just gone viral, and the little scamp was only 2 years old at the time, according his mother, Julianne Foisy Graveline, via CBC.

Graveline said she has no idea how Eli became obsessed with hockey since neither of the lads parents are hockey fans. But they cant help but encourage him when they see his love for the game.

We didn't know the joy of seeing your kid love something so much. I'll give up all my weekends to see him play," Graveline told CBC.

Of course, even though Elis love is real, he can skate like a champ and hes got a full kit, hes still too young to be on a team. But that doesnt stop him from playing or talking about the day he will finally get to deke and body check all over the rink.

When Eli gets out of the crib and onto the ice, its easy to see why people are already marking this 3-year-old for the NHL draft and maybe even stardom.
