Video: Hockey player scores after landing the back flip

4 Comments

Doing a back flip in the neutral zone on a three-on-one rush — and then scoring at the end of the play? That should probably be worth multiple violations of hockey’s “code.”

But such an acrobatic act is what one player has managed to pull off in a practice setting.

As the video clip below shows, a player turns and does a back flip during a rush, is given his stick by his teammate and then scores to finish off the play.

Granted, there was very little in the way of defending. Still, to land the back flip and then appear to remain onside (do we get a video review of that?) is impressive.

If there is a Mighty Ducks 4 movie, folks in charge of casting might need to give this player a call.
