    Singer Justin Bieber has been offered a minor league hockey tryout.

    Will Justin Bieber trade in the stage for an ice rink?

    National Hockey League farm team the Bakersfield Condors is offering the pop star an amateur tryout contract for the upcoming 2012-13 season.

    "Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness," Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Matt O'Dette said in a statement. "We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario."

    He adds, "I've scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us. Plus, he's a right-handed shot, which we've been looking to add. I think if we paired him on a line with [Robby] Dee and [Peter] Boyd we'd be tough to beat."

    General manager of the Condors Matt Riley tells E! News that he has reached out Justin's manager Scooter Braun and is "hopeful" that Bieber will take them up on their offer.

    Bieber showed off his hockey skills last December when he suited up with the Toronto Maple Leafs for a quick game on the ice alongside the pros.
