Most hockey players get excited when their shot is hard enough and accurate enough to merely pop the water bottle off the top of the net.
Most hockey players are not Steven Stamkos, a 60-goal sniper renown for his marksmanship and marketability.
Watch as the Tampa Bay Lightning captain winds up from point-blank range and fractures the sports drink container like so many goalies’ dreams.
The star forward tweeted out a video clip Monday from his TV commercial shoot for Powerade Canada. “Had fun filming with @PoweradeCA the other day,” Stamkos tweeted. “Nailed it.”
(Note: Not seen on camera is David Clarkson supergluing the bottle back together and chastising Stamkos for his actions.)
