Breaking: The Kontinental Hockey League knows how to put on an excellent all-star weekend.
The European super league held its all-star skills competition Friday in Slovakia and, if the video evidence is any indication, it looked like a helluva time.
A slew of notable ex-NHLers cracked the all-star rosters — Ilya Kovalchuk, Miroslav Satan, Marcel Hossa, Maxim Afinogenov, Leo Komarov, Jonathan Cheechoo, Alexander Radulov — with the actual game going Saturday night.
Since the highlight video is rather long, here’s a few highlights worth jumping to:
- decked out in a fish costume, player turns into human bowling ball (1:44)
- player fails to convert on high-speed hand-to-stick deke (3:25)
- Satan scores a beauty; enough said (5:50)
- goalie wears muscle man costume during shootout (6:10)
