Canadian Hockey Players Pull Off Stunning Hockey Stick Pass In Germany

Canadian Hockey Players Pull Off Stunning Hockey Stick Pass In Germany

Two German-based Canadian hockey players have arguably pulled off the most impressive piece of teamwork that you’re ever likely to see, but not in the sense that you might think.

Kevin Clark and Adam Courchaine are two teammates who currently play for Krefeld Pinguine in the DEL (Deutschland Eishockey Liga). The pair may not raise many eyebrows with their passing (in the traditional sense of the word), but when it comes to passing your colleague’s dropped stick back to him, they look more suited to the NHL.

Shortly after a face-off in the opposition third, Clark lost his stick whilst chasing down a breakaway. A few yards ahead of him was Courchaine who, whilst also hurtling back towards his own goal, casually flicked his teammate’s stick backwards. The stick flew into the air at the perfect height for Clark to reclaim his stick, all without breaking stride. Their side went on to beat Adler Mannheim 3-2.

It’s a shame that such a piece of brilliant improvisation didn’t end in a goal to get the recognition it truly deserves.
