American defenseman Mike Ratchuk has been a hockey journeyman of sorts, but he’s currently playing in the Austrian Erste Bank Eishockey Liga (EBEL) and busted out this absolutely filthy shootout exhibition in a recent game. This is the part where we feel grateful for the existence of YouTube for allowing us the pleasure of feasting our eyes upon this beauty, especially during such hockey-starved times.

Also, not to be understated, this is a DEFENSEMAN, people.
