Shane Doan has the most delicious hockey stick ever

Somewhere, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is
green with envy.

It became known during the 2011 NFL season that since he
was a kid, Lynch would get rewarded with a handful of
Skittles from his mother any time he scored a touchdown —
a tradition that continues during his pro playing days.

Nike even made special Skittles shoes for Lynch to wear
toward the tail end of the season — a nice gesture that
ended in fines from the fun police.

The fine folks at Skittles have gone a step further for
Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan, who is apparently a
big fan of the candy himself.

They’ve presented him with a Skittles-covered hockey stick
in recognition of his stellar season with the Coyotes, who
advanced to the Western Conference Finals for the first
time in franchise history.

If only Doan would have had that stick to console him
after the Coyotes’ Game 5 loss to the Kings, the NHL
officials may have escaped his wrath
.
