Sioux City Musketeers forward Tarek Baker doesn't need a stick to play hockey, and there's video evidence.

Baker lost his stick during Game 1 of the USHL playoffs against the Des Moines Buccaneers and still made, not one but two plays, that led to teammate JC MacLean's goal.

Baker's footwork was on point, perhaps channeling Lionel Messi as he kicked the puck once with his skate, then dished it to his right off his left foot to a cutting MacLean for the score.

That was some fancy footwork.
