Move over, Tony Hawk, Radek Faksa is coming through.
On Thursday, the Dallas Stars forward ran out of ice when Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield went in for the hip check.So he went off the ice. And on to the railing of the team's bench. And the move paid off in the form of a goal.
After the skateboard-type move, immortalized on the Dallas Stars scoreboard during the game Thursday with a nod to the skateboarding legend's video game "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater," Faksa passed the puck across ice, got it back, and roofed one past Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss.
Even with the goal, perhaps the most impressive part of the clip is how Faksa regains control of the puck with his skate after riding the rail in a move that would surely impress even the gnarliest of skaters.
