During a segment on Sports Night, Jarvis sat down for a one-on-one with Evan Abramson. He discussed his standout season, his future with Carolina, and the inspirations behind his tenacious character.

However, the interview took an amusing turn when Martinook made a funny noise to throw Jarvis off. Rattled, Jarvis scolded his prankster teammate with his favorite team.

This exchange left NHL fans on social media in stitches.

One fan reacted: "That was pure comedy. You don’t even see Martinook but you know it’s him, which makes the moment even greater. Jarvy just getting wide open was great too."

Seth Jarvis is on a rebuilding path this season

Seth Jarvis credits buying into playing defense as key to his breakout sophomore season with the Carolina Hurricanes.

"They made it pretty clear to me that if I want to play — and they knew how bad that I wanted to be on this team and how bad I want to be an impact player — that I have to play defense," Jarvis said to The Athletic.
“You could kind of feel last year that nothing was working for me offensively,” Jarvis said. “To be able to still kind of brush off the whole regular season — I thought I had a really good playoff. I thought I really turned it on there.”

Seth Jarvis scored five goals and 10 points in 15 games during the Hurricanes' run to the Eastern Conference Final, behind only Sebastian Aho.
