WATCH: Maple Leafs attempt to sing ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ in holiday video

TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs have proven, once and for all, why it was incredibly important for them to stick to hockey instead of pursuing a singing career.

The Buds’ Twitter account shared a video Monday of some of the players singing “Jingle Bell Rock” in this year’s holiday video.

Within hours it had been shared nearly a thousand times.

The sweet, dulcet tones of Dion Phaneuf kicked off the rockin’ holiday jam. The hockey club’s captain was followed by Leo Komarov, Joffrey Lupul, Nazem Kadri, James Reimer and more.

David Clarkson had trouble with the words while James van Riemsdyk didn’t even bother to sing. He was smart enough to talk his way out of the situation.

Lupul summed it up perfectly as he prepared for his turn, “Do I have to sing this?”

Which begs another question, is anything sacred?
