Hockey Player Stuns Crowd With “Javelin” Goal At KHL Event (Video)

Hockey Player Stuns Crowd With “Javelin” Goal At KHL Event (Video)

It’s definitely not new for any sports team to pull different sorts of stunts that amaze sports fans everywhere, especially for Russian sports teams.

Just in time before the KHL preseason, the Ak-Bars Kazan team held a fan event at their home arena in over the weekend. Naturally, everyone from the team did their best to entertain their psyched fans, but none of them quite stunned the crowd like forward Vladimir Tkachyov.

Instead of just striking the puck in between legs (because let’s face it, that’s not new), the 23-year-old Ukranian scooped the puck up with his stick, carried it towards the goal and actually threw the whole stick into the net like a javelin.

It was nice that Tkachyov decided to do it then, because he won’t be able to when he’s in the middle of an actual game.

Watch the amazing trick shot below:

U.S. Hockey Player Hilary Knight Bares All for the ESPN Magazine

U.S. Hockey Player Hilary Knight Bares All for the ESPN Magazine

Showing off her ripped bod, U.S Women’s National Team’s Hilary Knight graces ESPN’s annual Body Issue with nothing but her birthday suit on.

Currently playing for the Boston Blades of the CWHL, Knight is known for scoring three goals and posting six points in five games for the U.S. last February during the Sochi Olympics—where the squad bagged its second straight silver medal.

In her ESPN interview, Knight says “I had this idea that muscular isn’t feminine. There is this image of athletic women as small and petite—the yoga body type. Women in general, we tend to shrink ourselves and not have as much confidence as we should in presenting ourselves and our body types.”

She adds, “It’s OK to be fit and healthy and comfortable within your body, whatever frame you have. Since gaining 15 pounds to be at the top of my sport, I’ve tried to shatter the body image that muscular isn’t feminine.”

Knight is the second female hockey player featured in the annual issue after Julie Chu, who posed last 2012.
