Many people have interesting childhood anecdotes, but Ariana Grande's may be more bizarre than most.

Grande, whose album Sweetener recently earned her her first Grammy for best pop vocal album, has been a Florida Panthers hockey fan her whole life.


In 1998, a then-five year old Ariana was the first person to be hit with a hockey puck at the Florida Panthers' new stadium.

She would then go on to be struck by a puck during a game again!





Apparently this wasn't an isolated incident!




Ariana has quite a history with hockey.

Her first television performance was singing the national anthem during a Panthers game.



There was also a surprising amount of love for the Zamboni driver's hat!





It seems like the magnetism that draws in Ariana's fans works on hockey pucks too!
