The NFL Canada Twitter account has recently been running a new video segment where they question football players with Canadian trivia.

While the results have made for some solid laughs, the players have generally been totally clueless when it comes to their friends to the north.

However, star offensive lineman Taylor Lewan bucked that trend in the latest episode.

The Pro Bowl tackle was bang on with several questions and even flexed some pretty impressive hockey knowledge for a man who lives in Tennessee.

No, you're not imagining things, Lewan actually shouted out the Kelowna Rockets and their former star defenseman Shea Weber. 

There are some connections here, Weber was the captain of the Nashville Predators for six seasons and Lewan is a well known Preds fan. 

Lewan's wife is also rumoured to be from the Okanagan, which maybe explains his sudden love of the Kelowna Rockets. 

Go Rockets go!
