Kris Letang is good at shooting pucks into nets, no matter what kind.
The Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman hit a long-distance shot into a basketball net during their outdoor practice at Valley Ridge Community Association's outdoor rink in Calgary on Wednesday.
Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan held a surprise 4-on-4 scrimmage outside where the players took hockey back to its roots. Chad Ruhwedel scored to end the decisive third game, giving Team Black a series win against Team Gold.
Letang's epic trick shot was impressive, but forward Jake Guentzel apparently knows the true tale.
The venue and format added some levity to the practice while also making the players feel nostalgic.
"It was fun. Just being outdoors lightens the mood a little bit," Guentzel told the Penguins website. "You don't get to skate outdoors much anymore. … For all of us it brings back a lot of memories."
