Jimmy Butler was impressive on the United Center hardwood this season, and he's not half-bad on the ice, either.

The Bulls starting shooting guard was tonight's Shoot the Puck contestant in between the second and third period of the Blackhawks' and Blues' matchup.

Butler said he had never been on an ice rink, and though he didn't have skates on he looked like a natural as he took his first and seconds shots, missing left on both.

Butler missed Wednesday night's game against the Pistons with a small bout of knee tendinitis, but he celebrated like the knee was feeling alright as he netted his third and final chance.

The man who said he wants to be like Jonathan Toews couldn't complete the second part of the challenge, making a shot with just one slot available, but it was still an impressive outing.

Butler's teammate for the night, a kid named Ben, completed both parts of the Shoot the Puck challenge.
