    Jimmy Fallon hands out superlatives to players competing for a spot in the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Finals. (Published Thursday, May 26, 2016)

    The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon had fun with the the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night, after the South Bay hockey team made it to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in the franchise's 25-year history.

    He riffed on a bunch of NHL players, including a pimply faced image of Mirco Mueller, who he said was the "most likely to sign a 3-year deal with puberty."

    "That's interesting," Fallon said, his voice purposely cracking like he was a teenager, "because I didn't think he was going to sign."

    Mueller is a 21-year-old defenseman from Switzerland. But he looks a lot younger than that.

    Fallon also mocked Canada's full-bearded Joe Thornton, 36, as the "most likely to be manscaped at PetCo."

    And he riffed on clean-cut Tommy Wingels, 28, of Evanston, Illinois as the "most likely to be saving himself for prom night." And last but not least in the Sharks mocking, Fallon nicknamed 27-year-old center Logan Couture as "Sexy Gilbert Gottfried," whose acting career involves playing the voice of a parrot in Disney's "Aladdin" movie.
