Can you or someone you know write Canada's next great hockey song? Enter Hockey Night in Canada Song Quest here!

In our quest for Canada's next great hockey song (which you could write), we got to thinking about how much hockey and music have in common. They're both things Canadians are good at. They both require dedicated performance. And sometimes hockey plays look a whole lot like dance moves.

Sure, the words "shimmy" and "twerk" may not be the first things that come to mind when you think of NHL stars. But check out Ovechkin, Backes, Pavelec and more in the gallery above — you just might be convinced that some of the greatest hockey plays have really been inspired by classic dance moves.

What have we missed? Send your photos of hockey plays that look like dance moves to We just might add them to the gallery above.

If you've written a tune that could rock the rink as Canada's next great hockey song, make sure you submit it to Hockey Night in Canada Song Quest here! If you win, your song will air on Hockey Night in Canada. Submissions close Nov. 20. Voting begins Nov. 23.
