Hockey fan wins $100,000 by making impossible 115-foot shot (vids)


A season ticket holder with the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears achieved the seemingly impossible when he somehow managed to sneak a puck in the narrowest of crevices and into the net from 115 feet away during a recent intermission contest.

And his reward for accomplishing such a remarkable feat? An astounding $100,000.

And from another angle:

Incredible. As one can see, the opening in the board on the crease and covering the net is barely larger than a puck. There’s no way a couple of hockey-playing dogs could make that shot, that’s for sure.

Perhaps just as incredible? The shot was made on the very first time the Solar Bears have ever held this contest. Hope the team, who, being a minor league hockey outfit probably doesn’t have a lot of extra cash, had some kind of insurance policy in place.
