Justin Bieber may be off Instagram, but he's not off the ice!

After a heated back and forth with ex Selena Gomez -- over Bieber's new flame, Sofia Richie -- that culminated in the "Cold Water" singer deactivating his Instagram account, Bieber was all smiles as he hit the ice on Monday for an ice hockey match.

A source tells ET the 22-year-old singer scored one of his team's two goals during a loss at a Los Angeles area rink in the San Fernando Valley.

Fans have speculated that while Bieber has taken time off from his own Instagram, he may be posting from manager Scooter Braun's, after a photo of the hockey rink was shared to Braun's Instagram, with the caption, "Hockey night... Maybe I will only post on this page for now."

After Bieber's Instagram went down, Gomez took to Snapchat to apparently apologize as well for her part in the shade-off, writing, "What I said was selfish and pointless."

“If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only," Gomez, 24, allegedly wrote, in deleted comments to Bieber that were captured by fan screengrabs. "Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you."

"It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still trying to point the finger this way," Bieber apparently clapped back. "Sad. All love. I'm not one for anyone receiving hate."
