GIF: Tinfoil fish mask features in weirdest shootout attempt ever from KHL skills competition

Jan 11, 9:33 AM

On Saturday evening in Bratislava (which equates to Saturday morning in the Eastern time zone), the Kontinental Hockey league held their annual all-star game festivities. 

The structure of the "Master Show Super Skills Competition" event, which takes place ahead of the game itself, would be familiar to NHL fans. There's a hardest shot competition, a shooting accuracy competition, a speed relay and a shootout-type event. The only difference really is that the KHL's version is many degrees stranger.

Take, for example, Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk winger Yegor Milovzorov's fish-head puck-in-mouth goal:

That is definitely a thing that happened. In the absence of a 114 mph slap-shot "world record," it would appear the KHL all-star game required something even fishier this season.
