It turns out that 2012 NFL defensive player of the year J.J. Watt has some hockey skills as well. Judging from the YouTube video the Houston Texans linebacker tweeted on Tuesday, he's a decent skater and can handle the puck pretty well. Take a look.

Watt also happens to be a big fan of the Winter Olympics. Besides working out during the offseason, watching the Sochi Games seems to be his next favorite activity.
