Justin Bieber is proving he’s the ultimate big brother — even if it means he’s taking heat from Drake.

The “Sorry” singer, 25, spent a day on the ice with his 10-year-old brother Jaxon, introducing the grade-schooler to a group of players on the Toronto Maple Leafs, his hometown team.

Bieber chronicled their day at the rink with a series of Instagram photos, including a sweet snap in which he plants a kiss on Jaxon’s head as the brothers stand before players Tyson Barrie, 28, Mitch Marner, 22, and Auston Matthews, 22.

“The boys,” Bieber captioned the photo.

This isn’t the first time Bieber has brought Jaxon along for some fun: the star’s half-brother joined him back in 2016 on the Grammys red carpet, where the two posed for adorable shots together.

Meanwhile, the singer shared a second photo from the rink that featured him posing on the ice with Barrie, Marner and Matthews, plus more than a dozen other players who Bieber wrote were childhood friends of his.

“Got out on the ice with all of my childhood hockey buddies oh and these 3 legends @marner_93 @austonmatthews and @tysonbarrie4,” he wrote.

The large group, however, appeared to make another famous Canadian musician quite jealous: Drake.

“Wow this guy didn’t invite me eh,” the rapper, 33, commented on the post.

Drake even took his exclusion one step further when he re-shared a photo posted by Bieber that featured the star with Barrie, Marner and Matthews in what appeared to be a locker room.

In Drake’s version of the post, however, he Photoshopped a childhood picture of himself wearing ice skates over Barrie’s body.

“@justinbieber @austonmatthews good shoot around with the boys shout out to all the puck bunnies that came to watch greatness,” he wrote.

The fun-filled day for Bieber came after he spent Christmas celebrating with wife Hailey Baldwin, 23, who shared a sweet collage of Polaroids to Instagram of the couple cozying up to one another.
