Vladimir Putin Plays Hockey With Ex-NHL Stars – and Scores Eight Goals

Vladimir Putin played in an exhibition hockey game with retired NHL players on Saturday – and scored eight goals. Putin’s team won 18-6, with most of the 62-year-old president’s goals coming on assists from
NHL stars Pavel Bure and Valeri Kamensky. Bure, 44, played for the Vancouver Canucks, Florida Panthers and New York Rangers, and was affectionately known by US fans as “the Russian Rocket”. During his 15 years as Russia’s leader, Putin has frequently displayed his athletic skills, most notably in judo and swimming.
