Mikhail Sergachev can score from anywhere, and it doesn't even matter what sport he is playing.

The Tampa Bay Lightning shared a video of Sergachev drilling what can be conservatively estimated as a very deep NBA-range 3-pointer.

The Lightning hosted Brianna "Hoops" Green, a member of the famous traveling basketball team, the Harlem Globetrotters, on Friday.

The team shared a video of Sergachev, who has 14 points through 19 games and is teammates with the NHL leaders in points, Steven Stamkos, and goals, Nikita Kucherov, nailing what appeared to be a near 30-foot basketball shot.

Another video showed Green playing the popular kids game "knockout" with members of the Lightning, including Segachev, Kucherov, Vlad Namestnikov and J.T. Brown.
