Justin Bieber offered minor league ice hockey contract

Justin Bieber has been given the chance to play with minor league ice hockey team the Bakersfield Condors.

The Canadian singer has been approached by the ECHL team, who hail from California, after their boss saw videos of Bieber having a skate with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Matt O'Dette said in a statement that he was impressed by the 'Believe' star's pace and as a result put a one year contract on the table. He said:

"Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness. We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario. I've scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us. Plus, he's a right-handed shot which we've been looking to add."

Whether or not the Condors' offer is a cunning marketing ploy or a genuine proposal remains to be seen, however.
