FACT: This Is The Greatest Hockey Trick Shot Of All Time [VIDEO]
If you're a sports fan, you've seen trick shots. You've watched skills competitions and amazing dunks and Zdeno Chara's 108.8 miles per hour slap shot. But I can promise you that this trick shot is unlike anything you have ever seen, or anything you will ever see again.
Russian hockey team Ak Bars Kazan - part of the KHL - hosted an event for fans last week during which players participated in a shootout competition. Obviously this was all for fun, so style points mattered. And no one had more style than Vladimir Tkachyov.
Prepare to be amazed, confused, exhilarated and dare I say, maybe even a little bit turned on.

VLAD JUST TURNED HIS HOCKEY STICK INTO A JAVELIN LIKE A GODDAMN BOSS. I have no words.
Just kidding, of course I do.
It's really unbelievable that he was able to balance the puck on the stick and then throw it fast enough and with enough accuracy that both the stick and the puck got past the goalie and into the net. The amount of coordination and practice it takes to even skate proficiently is enough to impress me, so as far as I'm concerned, this is some superhero shit.
You can have your Blake Griffin dunking basketballs over a Kia. I'll take my Vlad, chucking puck-adorned hockey sticks like a mythical ancient god.
