There aren’t many players in the NHL with the ability to stickhandle like Patrick Kane, especially now that The Magician has taken leave of North America. While doing a recent photo shoot for Bauer in promotion of the new Bauer Vapor 1X stick, Bauer set up a stickhandler’s playground for the 2016 Hart Trophy winner.
He handles it as you’d expect, weaving around the ice, tossing the pick through a tire and generally putting on a pretty nice show for the cameras.
Watch the league’s reigning scoring leader show off his skills in the video below.
