Islanders cameraman diving into the bench to avoid falling on the ice is this week’s best NHL highlight

A nice dive into the bench, too!

Trying to walk on an ice rink wearing normal shoes can be tricky. Trying to walk on an ice rink wearing normal shoes and carrying a heavy television camera seems much more difficult, as this New York Islanders cameraman showed during a break against the Boston Bruins Thursday evening.

Naturally the Canadian folks compared his grand dive into the bench to Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson, but here in America, we know that as a Derek Jeter move first and foremost.

The good news is that it appears the cameraman didn’t injure himself trying to get between the benches. He got right back to work immediately afterwards, which is what you do when you’re a true pro.
