Things weren't looking so great for Aaron Dunn when his first two shots from center ice went wide of the tiny target in the bottom of the net at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

The third shot during the Vancouver Canucks' second intermission contest was on the money, however, and the graphic designer from Kamloops, British Columbia, became the winner of a new car.

While Canucks in-arena host Hannah Bernard could barely contain her shock and excitement, Dunn was super chill about the whole thing.

"The third shot looked good," Dunn told NHL.com. "I was confident until the first shot, then I thought what the heck I'll just shoot it and it went in!"

Dunn said he's looking forward to getting better gas mileage from the new car than he does with his pickup truck. A new car, some extra savings in gas and instant legend status? Sounds like a pretty good night out.
