However, constant injuries ever since have severely hampered his potential, and the Arsenal midfielder has spend the past year trying to prove himself to Arsene Wenger - last season on loan at Bournemouth, before needing to prove his fitness in the Europa League back with the Gunners this term.
Wilshere captioned the picture: 'Positive week, managed to get through 20 minutes of ice skating without getting injured'.
It is a well known fact that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has struggled with injuries during his career to date.
Hailing from Strasbourg, the eastern French city noted for its proximity to ski resorts, Wenger is well versed in such winter past-times and did have a word or two of caution for Wilshere.
Wenger said: "It's not ideal, honestly, but for your balance it is not bad". "But for a footballer I don't think it's great". "It depends, as well, what you do".
"I don't know exactly [what he did on the ice]. Violent ice-skating? I don't think he does that".
Wilshere has completed four of Arsenal's five Europa League group matches so far and is in contention to start again at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.
Arsenal are looking for a response after Saturday's 3-1 Premier League loss to Manchester United, a match in which they forced David de Gea into 14 saves, a league record.
He said: "Of course I want to be playing".
"In training when I play the team from the Premier League against the one from the Europa League it is very hard to predict who wins the game".
"I consider these players as well for the Premier League. No one is ruled out of any game".
