David Ayres isn’t finished with the last-minute saves.
The Toronto Zamboni driver-turned-Carolina Hurricanes goalie showed up at the tail end of Stephen Colbert’s Late Show monologue on Monday, when he helped wrap up a story about his own heroics.
“We’ve got a great show for you tonight and — Oh! God! I pulled my hamstring!” Colbert says, feigning injury. “I don’t think I could finish the monologue!”
“Don’t worry Stephen, I’ve got you!” Ayres yells out as he runs onto the set in a Hurricanes jersey.
“David, I pulled my hamstring, can you help me out?” Colbert says.
“I’ll finish it up for ya!” Ayres replies. “We’ve got a great show for you tonight. When we get back, Warren checks Bloomberg into the boards, so stick around!”
Colbert finishes the segment by screaming “whoo!” while spraying Ayres with a water bottle.
Ayres has been riding high ever since his unlikely NHL debut last week, when the 42-year-old stepped in as an emergency goaltender for the Hurricanes after both of their goalies went down with injuries in a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
