Shootouts in hockey have been around for a long time, but we’ve never seen a move quite like this.
Stickhandling specialist and Montreal hockey academy coach Shayne Jackson added his own twist to the Zorro move for a ridiculous shootout finish. Skating backwards with the puck seemingly on a string, he managed to deke the goalie with one hand.
It’s not the first time Jackson’s made a highlight reel play – his hands and puck control are documented all over his Instagram page.
Continued moves like this could draw the attention of NHL players and teams alike. Fellow social media stickhandling star Pavel Barber, for instance, was recently giving private skills lessons to Vancouver Canucks forward Jake Virtanen.
For now, though, he seems perfectly content to continue coaching kids and perfecting his craft.
