We're all finding ways to stay busy during this unprecedented time. Marc-Edouard Vlasic is making the most of it while the NHL pauses the season indefinitely amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Sharks. defenseman is spending some quality time with his family. His family being his fur babies.

Vlasic is a self-proclaimed proud dog dad. If you go by Instagram bios, that is, and you should. He had plenty of time to play with them in the snow.

Recently, the 32-year-old celebrated his 1,000th career NHL game. Prior to the puck drop to commemorate, he was joined by his wife, Martine, and one of his rescue pups, Kelly, on the ice.

He was also gifted with a hydrofoil, which is "a surfboard with a high-energy lithium-ion battery-powered board that extends below the board into the water."

Just what the rest of us would want to celebrate our 1,000th game.

He also got a 1.5-liter bottle of champagne.

Either way, he was happy. Almost "sleighing with the dogs," happy. Almost.
