The Toughest Trade returned with its second and final episode of 2017 on Friday night, with Wexford hurler Lee Chin swapping sports with Vancouver Canucks great Alex Auld to rapturous acclaim.
Former Hurler of the Year Larry O'Gorman (or Larry-O as Aul would eventually refer to him) was tasked with teaching the NHL legend the tricks of Ireland's wristier trade and stole the show with a highly entertaining performance, while Chin was put through his paces at Rogers Arena, set to the beautiful backdrop of British Columbia's snow-capped mountains and Vancouver's cityside beaches.
Prior to the show's airing, Aul had explained why - despite being a goaltender in hockey - he refused to stand between the sticks in hurling, instead being deployed at full forward for Faythe Harriers.
Chin, meanwhile, faced the unenviable task of taking to the ice for the first time. It was here when he produced by far the funniest moment of the episode, when asked by the Canucks skills specialist coach if he had worked on any celebrations should he score on his hockey debut. The coach's reaction when Chin attempted to demonstrate a running fist-pump on skates was a real highlight from this year's Toughest Trade.
K, don't ever do that, okay. Like, ever. Okay?
