This Shootout Goal from the Swedish Hockey League Is Just Ridiculous (Video)
Unless you happen to be a huge fan of the SHL—the Swedish Hockey League—you probably have no idea who Linus Klasen is. The 27-year-old forward from Stockholm has spent just one season playing pro hockey in North America, and of his 51 total games, only four were with the Nashville Predators in the NHL. The other 47 were in the AHL with the Milwaukee Admirals.
However, you don’t have to know any of that to appreciate the ridiculous shootout goal we have today. In fact, you don’t even have to be a huge fan of hockey. If you’ve ever tried to ice skate then you know it’s kind of hard, and you can fully understand how spinning around on a dime while pulling the puck through your legs would be considered an advanced move.
Take a look:
Yep, that’s good. In fact, I’ll go ahead and ask you the same question posed by the person who posted this video on YouTube: is this the best shootout goal ever?
Personally, I think it might be. And I’ve seen some good ones.
