Magisk Klubbpass: The Coolest Thing The Mighty Ducks Never Did

By / 12.26.11

I will handle this video’s title like I handle the opening credits to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I don’t know whether or not “Magisk” means “magic”, but I’m positive “klubbpass” means “club pass” and that the Swedish Elite League is awesome for even having a word for it. This is the coolest eight seconds since Luke Perry something something.

What you need to know, courtesy of Puck Daddy:

In an early December loss to Luleå Hockeyförening, [Oscar] Moller was on the receiving end of an unusual (and quite awesome) pass: Moller lost his stick in the offensive zone; his teammate returned it to its rightful owner by flipping it with his own stick back to Moller, all while transitioning to defense.

It’s seriously something the Mighty Ducks could’ve (and probably should’ve) pulled against evil Iceland at the ’94 Junior Goodwill Games. “This isn’t a hockey game, it’s a circus!” Of course, if you need real life pre-Crisis Gordons Bombay you don’t have to look any further than the NHL, who have a rule in place to prevent this kind of radical awesomeness:

“A player who has lost or broken his stick may only receive a stick at his own players’ bench or be handed one at his players’ bench or be handed one from a teammate on the ice. A player (Henrik Sedin) will be penalized if he throws, tosses, slides or shoots a stick to a teammate on the ice.”

They probably have regulations in place about the Knuckle Puck, too.
