A shot you have to see to believe

Here’s a little treat for you hockey-starved folks out there, courtesy of Vladimir Tkachyov of the Kontinental Hockey League.

During an intrasquad skills competition on Wednesday, the 20-year-old Ukrainian lifted the puck onto his stick at center ice and proceeded to pull off a move that was half Dwayne Robertson, half Kenny Wu. And, to top it off, Tkachyov did what Kaspars Daugavins was unable to last year, beating the goalie glove-side to complete the stunt.

Check out the highlight-reel goal in the video below, with a stick tap to Puck Daddy.
