That's cold.

Phildelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek welcomed Washington Capitals rookie defenseman Madison Bowey, making his NHL debut, in a blender on Saturday, turning him every which way and back again before dishing to Wayne Simmonds for a goal.

Voracek's stickhandling is a sight to behold as he kicks the puck to himself while entering the zone, goes to a far-reaching backhand that causes Bowey to lose his stick, then crosses the puck back in front of the rookie while somehow avoiding the lumber on the ice, then regains control before it finds its way over Simmonds.

While it is debatable whether he lost the puck or intentionally slid it to his teammate to earn the assist, there is no denying this: Voracek can play some hockey.
