American born Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk celebrated his Thanksgiving in style on Thursday. The high-scoring playmaker first shared a photo of the bird he was about to eat on Instagram - professional hockey players, they're just like us! - and seemed pretty excited about it:

"Best piece #stylepoints," explained Galchenyuk while pretending that admission to Valhalla wasn't a factor in his decision to forsake utensils.
