Braden Holtby doppelgänger found 

The goalie in question is actually Shane Owen of the Fife Flyers in the EIHL. 

Owen, 26, has also previously suited up for the Washington Capitals’ AHL team on loan from the South Carolina Stingrays, before coming to play for Fife in the summer of 2016. So there is a somewhat tenuous link between the Canadian netminders. 

Owens (at least from this angle) could be double for Braden Holtby. Photo taken by @hazelrayson

When I double take a netminder, you know there must be some resemblence. Especially when I double take someone for Holtby. 

I’m not going to apologise for something lighthearted and fun in the light of some recent controversies concerning the EIHL, someone needs to break the pattern. 

The game in which this photo was taken saw the Fife Flyers win in overtime, beating the Genting Casino Coventry Blaze. The final score was 4-3 to Fife. 

Have you come across any other doppelgängers in the hockey world? Send me a tweet @hazelrayson
