The winner of the tournament was Jesper Bratt. But like every awesome video game has taught us, it’s not really a victory until you’ve taken down the Big Boss.
The Big Boss in Swedish shootouts being, of course, Peter Forsberg.
Forsberg – the 40-year-old former NHL great who actually, this-time-he-means-it retired from hockey in 2011 – strapped on the skates and took on this whippersnapper in the shootout. Who won?
SPOILER: It was a tie.
But at least we got to see that magic “Forsberg” move at ice level on more time. Granted, it was against sub-KHL goaltending, but it was a sick move nonetheless.
