Michael Phelps is a hockey fan now, NHL LockoutThe NHL lockout is looming. When the clock strikes midnight on Sunday morning, the current collective bargaining agreement expires and according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the players association and owners aren’t “even in the same universe.”

But that isn’t stopping retired Olympian/Baltimore native/friend of Ray Lewis/Subway endorsor Michael Phelps from picking up the sport.

Based on the retweet from Capitals PR dude Sergey Kocharov, I would guess Phelps met a Caps player. Perhaps Alex Ovechkin?
