Video: Penguins’ Bortuzzo’s alley-oop dunk

Mar 8, 2013, 8:16 PM EDT

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Robert Bortuzzo may have a future in basketball if this hockey thing doesn’t work out.

The 23-year-old blue liner recently threw down an alley-oop dunk while shooting hoops with his Penguins teammates at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Not bad, considering Bortuzzo is listed at 6’4″ tall.
