Dougie Hamilton puts Canadian spin on #DriveByDunkChallenge

If you have a hockey net outside your house, you could be next.

The #DriveByDunkChallenge, where you drive around looking for basketball nets to dunk on, has breached the 49th parallel, with a very Canadian twist.

Calgary Flames defenceman Dougie Hamilton posted this video to his Instagram page, where he went out shooting road hockey balls into nets.

The hockey version of this summer’s favourite prank isn’t quite as graceful as the original, with Hamilton having to chase down his ball – sometimes after shooting from a very unforgiving lie – but we have to give the 6-foot-6 defenceman credit for originality.


The Flames begin pre-season play in 52 days, on Sept. 18.
