Fetisov to involve Jim Carrey and Leonardo di Caprio in North Pole hockey match

Hollywood actors Jim Carrey and Leonardo di Caprio might take part in a friendly ice hockey match at the Barneo drifting Arctic camp, said famous Soviet Russian ice hockey player Vyacheslav Fetisov, First Deputy Chair of the State Duma's Committee on Physical Fitness, Sports, Tourism and Youth Affairs.

On Wednesday, Fetisov was appointed UNEP Goodwill Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic and instructed to organize a friendly international ice hockey game near the North Pole in the spring of 2019.

"That was how I wanted to celebrate my 50th birthday ten years ago. I am confident that all our great world-famous hockey players will agree to take part. We understand that as many celebrities as possible should be involved. We had a meeting with James Carrey who is interested in this proposal. Di Caprio said he was hopeless when it came to skating, but, as far as I know, he is already trying to remedy this problem, and I think he will be able to manage by the time the match takes place," Fetisov told journalists.
