Watch USHL player's incredible no-stick assist

Sioux City forward Tarek Baker makes two slick moves with skates @NHL

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.

Tweet from @ChrisPalmquist6: ASSIST OF THE YEAR: @Tbakes9 of @Musketeerhockey doesn't need a stick! @mac_attack_15 @USHL @SportsCenter @Buccigross #SCTop10

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.
